The Best Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Author Marina


  • 1/2 cup butter (I'm partial to Kerry Gold butter) room temperature
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups icing sugar


  1. Using a hand-held mixer, cream the butter, cream cheese and vanilla extract together

  2. Gradually add 1/2 a cup of icing sugar to the mix and as it mixes in, add the next and continue on till all the icing sugar is mixed in well.

  3. Use immediately or refrigerate for use later in the day.
