This cream cheese frosting recipe is probably my number one requested recipe. It blends a traditional butter cream frosting with a cream cheese frosting to create an icing that is rich and creamy but not overly surgery. It tastes good on just about anything, but I especially love it on simple vanilla cake.
1 8oz brick of cream cheese, softened
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
4-6 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 Tbsp milk
Start by blending the softened butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add a few cups of powdered sugar one at a time and blend after each addition. Add the vanilla and the milk and blend again. Finally, add the rest of the powdered sugar, a little at a time, until you reach the consistency that you desire.
Don’t forget to taste as you go in order to get the right amount of sweetness for your liking!
