1 lb (2 8oz pkgs) cream cheese, softened slightly, cut into small pieces
½ c (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened slightly, cut into small pieces
1 ½ tsp vanilla
5 c sifted confectioners sugar
In a medium size bowl on the medium speed of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and the butter until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla. Gradually add the sugar and beat until well incorporated. This yields frosting for one 2 or 3 layer 9” cake, or a bunch of cupcakes.
