Cream Cheese Frosting

RECIPE FOR CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

Rich Frosting:

Combine:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
  • 2-3 T. margarine (softened)–I used butter.
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 c. powdered sugar

I beat the cream cheese together with the vanilla, added the powdered sugar, and then added 2 T. butter, and continued to add more butter until I got to the consistency desired.  I used my hand mixer.

Frosting (not as rich):

Combine:

  • 3 oz. cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/4 c. butter (softened)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 c. powdered sugar

Again, I would start with only 2 T. butter and continue to add more butter until you get to the desired consistency.

Spread the frosting over the cooled cake.
