Cream Cheese Frosting

I have finally found the best Cream Cheese Frosting. I was reading a blog "Life Made Simple" and saw a recipe for Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting loved the idea for the cinnamon rolls but when I saw the recipe for the cream cheese frosting I got excited because I have tried a few variations in my time of cooking but this one was the one. I'm sold and this will be the one I use from this day on.



Cream Cheese Frosting:
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. whole or 2% milk
2-3 c. powdered sugar

Prepare Frosting:
By beating the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, salt and lemon juice in a medium mixing bowl until smooth. Add the powdered sugar one half cup at a time. If the mixture becomes too thick, slowly add milk one half tablespoon at a time.
