Sweet Cream Topping –

This was originally made as a frosting…but now I use it for everything. Cake frosting, cookie frosting/filling, crepe filling, topping for my chia pudding, and right off the spoon as a treat or fat bomb.

  • 8 oz cream cheese (softened)
  • 4 Tbsp butter (softened)
  • 6 T heavy whipping cream (depending on consistency wanted)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract (others can be used for different flavors)
