(adapted from this recipe)
8 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup butter (not margarine)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
1. Let the cream cheese and butter sit on the counter until they are soft and room temperature. Skipping this step is no bueno.
2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Add the vanilla, and slowly mix in the powdered sugar. Beat for 2-3 minutes or until it's deliciously creamy.
3. Frost your cake, brownies, pumpkin cookies...and enjoy! Store whatever you frosted and any leftovers in the fridge.
