Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting is out of this world! It is the perfect sweet pumpkin flavored frosting for all of your fall treats!

I think cream cheese frosting belongs on almost every baked treat, maybe with a few exceptions! There is just something about the smooth, sweet creamy goodness of a cream cheese frosting that is far better than a regular frosting. Add in some pumpkin spice and it takes it to a whole new level! This frosting has everything you expect in a regular cream cheese frosting but the pumpkin makes it perfect for all of your fall treats!

The Pumpkin Flavor

This frosting is simple, and just basically my Easy Cream Cheese Frosting recipe but with pumpkin. You can find my regular Cream Cheese Frosting by clicking HERE.

For the added pumpkin flavor I use a little bit of canned pumpkin and some Pumpkin Pie Spice. The combo is exactly what this frosting needs. The pumpkin adds some color, but not much of flavor. The pumpkin pie spice adds the yummy taste that screams fall!

Using the Pumpkin Cheese Frosting

What are you going to use this frosting on?

My favorite things are sugar cookies! We make a big sugar cookie pizza (just cookie dough in a pizza pan) and frost it with this delicious frosting and top it with some cute fall sprinkles.

Some other ideas are as a frosting for a white cake, yellow cake or spice cake or cupcakes…even a chocolate cake is super yummy! Make this for a dip for fresh apples, peaches and banana slices. And it can also be used as a yummy dip for graham crackers, Nilla Wafers, or sweet cookies.
