Cream Cheese Frosting


Recipe source: Betty Crocker cookbook circa 1950’s

This is a classic frosting I use for a variety of things – sugar cookies, cupcakes or cake. It is very easy to add some variety to the frosting recipe, so it easy to use as a base for your creativity.

You need:

  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened at room temp.
  • 1 tbs of whole milk, or more as needed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • dash of salt
  • 2 1/2 cups of confectioner’s sugar

Step one: blend cream cheese, milk, vanilla and salt.

Step two: gradually add in confectioner’s sugar and beat until smooth. Add more milk to get the desired consistency.

Ideas –

  • Peppermint – add crushed peppermint to the frosting and use them on candy cane sugar cookies.FullSizeRender(57)
  • Mocha – Blend in 1 tbs of instant powdered coffee to the frosting or add a little actual coffee in place of the extra milk.
