- 1 package (8 oz/250 g) cream cheese softened
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened (50 mL)
- 2 cups confectioner's (icing) sugar, sifted (500 mL)

- 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted (125 mL)
- 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted (125 mL)
In a mixer bowl fitted with paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth, for 3 minutes. Gradually add confectioner's sugar, mixing on low speed until it gathers, about 2 minutes. Increase speed to high and whip until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Fold in vanilla, pecans and coconut by hand.
