Recipe: Use Chèvre Goat Cheese for Classic Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream Cheese Frosting is a classic for spice or carrot cakes. An alternative we love is substituting Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre goat cheese for the cream cheese.

Chèvre is a fresh, light-textured, rindless goat cheese that is similar to cream cheese but softer and fluffier with only 1/3 of the fat and calories and it’s delicious in recipes like this one!
