Cream Cheese Frosting

We're on a frosting kick around here - lots of spring and summer birthdays! I first made this frosting last year for Jaden's first birthday party and it was easy and delicious. Though I'm not a frosting expert, if the recipe isn't easy and delicious, it's probably not worth your time. The recipe comes from the lovely and talented Kristina Weber-Herrin.

Makes 2 cups.

  • 16 ounces cream cheese, room temp.
  • 8 ounces butter, room temp.
  • 1.5 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • splash of vanilla
  1. Using a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese on low.
  2. Add butter, sugar and vanilla to cream cheese and beat lightly until just combined. If you mix too much, the mixture will go 'limp'.
  3. Use immediately or refrigerate if you need to stiffen it up a bit.
