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.
