Cream Cheese Icing

Here's a cream cheese frosting recipe that's egg free, free of refined sugars and corn-free if you leave out the vanilla or use corn-safe flavoring.

From Desserts by Sue Gregg (Eating Better Cookbooks)


Blend together until smooth and frost completely cooled cookies or cake with:
4 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

What brand of cream cheese is corn-free?

I'm sorry; I don't know. I'll see if I can find out for you.

I make yogurt cheese instead; just put the yogurt in a cheesecloth or a cloth-lined seive and let it drip out for a few hours or overnight. With the whey gone, it's the texture of cream cheese.
