Recipe

Yield: Makes enough to frost a 3-layer 9-inch cake

Ingredients

  • Three 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 5 cups sifted confectioners sugar
  • 1½ cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

In a standing electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or with a handheld electric mixer in a large bowl, mix the cream cheese and butter at low speed until incorporated. Add the sugar and vanilla. Increase the speed to high, and mix until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.

Store in the refrigerator before using, until it is somewhat stiff, about 15 minutes. The frosting may be stored in the refrigerator for 3 days.
