Cream Cheese Frosting

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.

Cream Cheese Frosting

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!
