Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

I can't think of a better combination then cinnamon, sugar and cream cheese. Throw in a little vanilla and you have my full attention. This frosting recipe goes well with spice, pumpkin and... who am I kidding? It goes well with any cake or maybe straight out of the bowl.

This recipe is enough for a 13x9 sheet cake. It can easily be doubled if you need more.

4 oz room temperature cream cheese
4 cups sifted powder sugar(sifting makes the frosting fluffy and much creamier)
2 tablespoon room temperature butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup milk or cream

Mix butter and cream cheese until creamy. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Mix until well blended. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until all sugar is incorporated. Use the milk or cream if the frosting gets too thick. Use a little at a time. Cream cheese will easily become too thin.
