Homemade Cream Cheese Frosting


I am in full training mode and this is not something that is part of my everyday diet but with Easter right around the corner I had to share it. It is so yummy and worth a special treat when you have been really really good!

With Easter right around the corner I wanted to share a recent recipe I made. I baked a fresh batch of sugar cookies and I put together a homemade cream cheese frosting. Its just as easy to make this as it is to open a can of frosting. Its a quick and easy cream cheese frosting recipe! This recipe is delicious for all types of cupcakes and a favorite on chocolate cake, carrot cake and more!

  • 1/2 cup of butter (1 stick), room temperature
  • 8 oz of Philly cream cheese (1 package), room temperature
  • 2 - 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


1 With an electric mixer, mix the butter and cream cheese together, about 3 minutes on medium speed until very smooth. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure even mixing.
2 Add the vanilla extract and mix. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Keep adding until you get to desired sweetness and thickness. When adding the powdered sugar turn mixer to low to keep the sugar from making a mess.
3 Once cookies are cool spread over and enjoy!
