• Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered (10X) sugar, sifted
Put the cream cheese and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with
the paddle attachment and paddle at medium speed until creamy, approximately
30 seconds.
With the motor running, pour in the vanilla and paddle for 30 seconds. Add
the sugar, a little at a time, and mix until smooth, approximately 1 minute
after the last addition.
Use right away, or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
