Homemade cinnamon cream cheese is fast and easy to make, with a sweetly spiced flavor! Use it as a spread or dip.


  • 1 block cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon milk, optional (see notes below)


  1. Make sure the cream cheese is softened. Leave it out at room temperature for 1 hour, or place it on a plate in the microwave, cook 5 seconds, flip over the block of cheese and cook another 5 seconds.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese with the cinnamon and powdered sugar, using 2 tablespoons for a lightly sweet spread or 3 tablespoons for a sweeter version. Alternatively, use a food processor to whip it together, which results in a lighter texture. Add 1/2 tablespoon milk for a more spreadable texture or if you’re planning to use it as a dip.
  3. Serve immediately, or refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Store up to 2 weeks refrigerated.
