*Maple Cream Cheese Frosting*

1/2 C Butter
1 pkg Cream Cheese
1 Tbs. Maple Syrup
2 1/2 C Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla
-mix it up till it becomes smooth.  If you have clumps, just put it over where your oven is baking and it will smooth the butter and cream cheese out.

Enjoy.
Let me know if you try these, they’re super yummy.  Also, if anyone wants a vegan version, I could figure that out too.
