When I cook, I usually wing it. That is unless I am following a recipe. Measurements are approximate.
- 1 stick of unsalted butter softened
- 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract (the real stuff, not imitation) I use the Fresh & Easy Bourbon Vanilla Extract (best vanilla EVAH)
- 4 oz of cream cheese
- 3 cups of powdered sugar, plus more if a thicker frosting is desired.
- a splash of milk to thin icing if you get to excited with the powdered sugar
- pinch of salt
Viola! Homemade frosting!
