Cream Cheese Frosting
Makes about 5 cups
  • 12 ounces (340 grams) cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ teaspoons (6 grams) vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5⅔ cups (680 grams) confectioners’ sugar
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and butter at medium-low speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in vanilla and salt until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low, and slowly add confectioners’ sugar, beating until combined. Increase mixer speed to medium, and beat until fluffy, about 1 minute.
