Cream Cheese Frosting

Recipe Image Not AvailableI'd been craving carrot cake, so I decided to experiment with one of my favorite frosting recipes ("Butter-Cream Cheese Frosting" from 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes by Carol Gelles) to see if I could low-carbify it.

½ c cream cheese, softened (4 oz)
1 T butter, softened
1 T honey
¼ t vanilla

Beat together all ingredients until fluffy.
