Alison's Favorite Cream Cheese Frosting
 
 
Easy, fluffy, and the perfect way to top a cake, cookie, or cupcake!
Ingredients
  • 1 pkg. (8oz.) Cream Cheese
  • ½ stick (4 Tbs.) butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract (almond extract is good too!)
  • 2.5-3 cups *organic powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Bring cream cheese and butter to room temperature (very important. Cream cheese will never become smooth if it's not brought to room temp and beaten, by itself, until creamy and fluffy), beat until fluffy.
  2. Add vanilla.
  3. Add powdered sugar one half cup at a time until desired consistency/taste is achieved (this may require more or less than 3 cups of powdered sugar- you decide).
Notes
*Please note that sugar made from sugar beets is generally a genetically modified food. An easy solution is to simply buy organic sugar and powdered sugar.
