Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cups 1x


This dairy-free cream cheese frosting is also vegan, it’s the perfect creamy counterpoint to the pumpkin cookies. 




  1. Cream the cream cheese and margarine together until fluffy.
  2. Add the maple syrup and beat again.
  3. Slowly add the powdered sugar.
  4. Add the vanilla at the end.
  5. If the filling seems too thick, add a few splashes of dairy-free milk.


I used Country Crock Plant Butter Sticks with Olive Oil today. If you need ideas on alternatives, check out my post on dairy-free butter alternatives

If you don’t have a dairy allergy, just use regular butter, cream cheese, and milk.
