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
How to Make It
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.
This was a really good, simple frosting. I used the whip attachment on my mixer to make this really fluffy. I also doubled the lemon juice and zest to add a little more flavor. Quick, easy, and delicious!
