Irish Crème Cream Cheese Frosting

We were gathered together at Barb’s for an early mid-week lunch.

The wine – ermmm Fruit Salad – was not flowing, because Mira needed to get to work that afternoon, but we had begun planning the menu for our next Book Club Gathering.

Iberian Meatballs? No problem, and… I thought I could serve them with a batch of Gluten-Free Cauliflower Waffles. Then, Barb put in a request for gluten-free Brownies (Mira) and…

•1/8 – 1/4 tsp black pepper (trust me)
•1/4 cup Irish crème liqueur
•Heavy cream or milk

Add the Irish crème and the pepper (it works, truly); and continue to whip.

If you think it needs it, ad heavy cream or milk by tablespoons, then whipping again,  to get your frosting to the desired thickness/consistency.
