Are you doing any holiday baking? If so, you’re going to love this cream cheese frosting recipe. It’s thick, sturdy, and super easy to pipe on cakes, cookies, brownies, and anything else in between. The best part? It’s not overly sweet.


8 ounces cream cheese, cold (I typically use Neufchatel cream cheese)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract


Place the cream cheese in a mixing bowl.
Using a hand mixer, beat until smooth.
Gradually add the butter 2 Tablespoons at a time, and continue beating until smooth and well blended.
Add powdered sugar and vanilla all at once. Blend until combined and smooth. (Don’t beat too long or the frosting will be too soft to pipe. If this happens, place the frosting in the refrigerator or freezer until it firms back up.) Use for any recipe that calls for cream cheese frosting.
