Cream Cheese Frosting

This simple recipe has become a favorite. It refrigerates well. Makes plenty for a layered cake or enough for two 9X13 cakes. Good for a filling between cookies (vanilla wafers, sandwich cookies, etc). Good consistency for cake decorating.

Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe:

2 (8oz) Cream Cheese packages, softened

½ c Butter, softened

2 c Sifted powdered sugar

1 t Vanilla

Make sure that the butter and cream cheese are well softened. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the vanilla, then gradually stir in the powdered sugar. Store in the refrigerator after use.

Total Costs: $3.50

Cream Cheese $2 (Aldi's)

Butter $1 (Aldi's)

Powdered Sugar $.50 (Aldi's)


Replace Vanilla with Butter flavoring, or other flavored extracts
