Homemade Cream Cheese Frosting has a delicious balance of sweetness and tanginess. Very easy to make with just 4 ingredients.
SWEETEN TO YOUR LIKING
Although the recipe calls for 3 cups of confectioners sugar, add 1 suggest adding one cup at a time.
After combining ingredients with a hand held mixer, taste a sample.
Add more confectioners sugar (aka powdered sugar) until satisfied with the taste.
I used 1-1/2 cups because I prefer “slightly” sweet frosting.
HELPFUL PREPARATION TIPS
Make sure the cream cheese and unsalted butter are VERY soft before mixing together. This will help make the frosting smooth.
Tiny lumps in the frosting are okay. Still tastes great in my opinion.
Use a hand-held mixture to thoroughly combine ingredients until preferred smoothness.
