Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream Cheese Frosting

As promised, I wanted to share with you my recipe for cream cheese frosting. This frosting is great on cinnamon rolls, sugar cookies, banana bread, red velvet cupcakes…must I go on? My stomach is already grumbling!

Here’s to another family favorite!

Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 1/2 c. butter/margarine, softened
  • 1 pkg. (8oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 4 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

*NOTE: This makes a large batch of frosting – enough for about 3-3.5 dozen cookies or rolls. Cut the recipe in half when working with smaller batches or  keep the left-overs in the refrigerator for 2-3 days to use on quick desserts or breads.


  1. Cream the butter, vanilla and cream cheese in a mixing bowl. 
  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar to form the frosting.
  3. Spread on cookies, cinnamon rolls, banana breads, etc

I recently used this frosting on my easy, mini fruit pizzas.
