Another amazing frosting recipe from Magnolia! I swear by these recipes, this is my go-to book for icing when I bake!!
1 pound (two 8-ounce packages) cream cheese, softened and cut into small pieces
6 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened and cut into small pieces
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
5 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and beat well. Gradually add the sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating continuously until smooth and creamy. Cover and refrigerate icing for 2-3 hours, but no longer, to thicken before using.
Makes enough for one 2-or 3-layer 9-inch cake
Enjoy! xoxo Julie
