Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe that is to die for!

Cream Cheese Recipe that is to die for!

Thank you Martha for being so fabulous (and slightly neurotic)! She was right in that it makes a lot of frosting – I used it on a box cake mix of Betty Crocker Carrot Cake mix (not bad for $1.50) and made an 8×8 pan and 12 cupcakes to boot and still had about 1.2 cup left over. I also added coconut shavings to the 8×8 pan to add more texture and flavor to the box mix. 

  • YIELD Makes about 2 cups

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces, room temperature
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

  1. STEP 1

    Place cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula, soften cream cheese. Gradually add butter, and continue beating until smooth and well blended. Sift in confectioners’ sugar, and continue beating until smooth. Add vanilla, and stir to combine.
