Ingredients

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
Zest of 1 lemon, grated
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preparation

With an electric mixer on medium, beat the cream cheese until softened. Slowly add the sugar, zest, and juice and beat until creamy, about 3 minutes.

Tip: For lump-free frosting, you will need room-temperature cream cheese. To hurry the process up, place an unwrapped block of cream cheese on a plate and microwave it at 50 percent power for 10-second intervals.
