Cream Cheese Frosting

1 - 8 ounce package cream cheese
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons Triple Sec (optional)
2 cups powdered sugar

Using an electric mixer or food processor at low-medium speed, mix cream cheese and butter together, then add vanilla and optional Triple Sec. Slowly mix in powdered sugar one cup at a time. Do not over-beat—may cause cream cheese to become grainy. Frost cake and enjoy the leftovers on cinnamon-raisin bagels!
