I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good, easy cream cheese frosting recipe?
Here's my cream cheese frosting recipe:
1 cup butter or crisco (I use butter, however, my grandma swears by shortening)
8 oz brick cream cheese
1 tsp. almond extract (can use vanilla)
1lb powder sugar
Cream the butter/shortening until light and fluffy. Add in room temp cream cheese and extract and whip until incorporated. Gradually add powder sugar until the whole bag is gone. I never refrigerate my frosted cake.
I have also had success using a butter/shortening combo, use equal amounts of both butter and shortening and proceed the same as above.
Good luck :D
This is my 75 year old grandmother's recipe. I've never found a better one. The almond extract really sells it, in my opinion.
