Butterscotch Cream Cheese Frosting

Lisa Crum


Ok...this one (as usual) came along by accident! I was baking a pumpkin cake and wanted to whip up a special frosting. Had all the ingredients in my mixer and thought, "What about adding a package of butterscotch pudding?" Shazam! Who needs cake? It made the frosting very smooth and mellow tasting. I think you'll like it...maybe enough to forego the cake and just eat the frosting with a spoon! The possibilities are endless here...pumpkin roll filling, topping for spice cake, carrot cake. Have fun, and let me know if you like it as well as I did!
