Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting
Soften the cream cheese at room temperature for at least 15 minutes. Do not soften in the microwave or the texture of the frosting will be runny.
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter , softened but still cool
- 4 ounces cream cheese , softened, cut into 4 pieces
- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
With electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add cream cheese one piece at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. Add vanilla and mix until no lumps remain.
