I gave this 3 stars for the recipe as is. But after I added 1/4 teaspoon each of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg I give it 5 stars!! Absolutely scrumptious!!

If you are looking for cream cheese icing, this isn't it. It's more like cream cheese frosting. I added a lot more cream cheese to make it more like the classic icing your grandma makes.

Delicious Icing!!! It doesn't take a lot of ingredients and can be used on a number of different baking treats. I would up the amount of cream cheese depending on which item you're frosting. ...

Great recipe and so so simple... I added 1 tsp of cinnamon to give it a little kick and topped my pumpkin spice cake with it :)

Made it with the pumpking bars and it was yummy. I doubled the recipe for the two 13x9 pan's.

At first I thought there was WAY too much sugar, but boy was I wrong! This is just perfect! Thanks!

Great with the pumpkin bars!!

I made this to frost pumpkin pie squares and it was a hit. I added 1 tbsp of milk, to make sure the frosting stayed creamy rather than too firm because I made it the night before. Was wonderful...

Very good, quick and easy! Added a bit of cinnamon, which changed the color a bit but it turned out very well!
