    icancook66's Note:

    Got this recipe from Cooks Country, its a lightened up version of cream cheese frosting, but what it lacks in fat content it makes up for in taste. It is light and delicious! Try it on carrot cake. NOTE: Someone asked about fat free cream cheese, this recipe is from Cooks Country and they do a good job of explaining how recipes are developed, they note that they did try fat free cream cheese but taste testers found it to be un-natural tasting and gummy, and the "light" cream cheese was runny. With the neufchatel cream cheese they cut the fat to 1/3 but still got a creamy good tasting frosting.
