Ingredients

  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 block (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon

Directions

  • In the work bowl of a stand mixer with the whip attachment, or in a medium bowl with a hand mixer, add the cream and confectioners’ sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until it forms soft peaks, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a separate bowl and reserve.
  • In the same work bowl add the cream cheese, maple syrup, and cinnamon. With the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until it is smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add the whipped cream and beat on medium speed until well mixed and fluffy, about 20 seconds.
  • Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl, cover with plastic, and chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.
