Cream Cheese Frosting

This is my favorite cream cheese frosting recipe. I use it all the time for all kinds of desserts. 

Here are just a few of the ways I use this frosting.

Carrot Cake or Zucchini Cake

Cream Cheese Frosting
From my Betty Crocker Cookbook
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. margarine, softened
2 t. milk
1 t. vanilla
4 c. powdered sugar
Mix together cream cheese and margarine. Add in remaining ingredients. Mix until smooth.

This frosting makes a lot. Most of the time I only use half of it and freeze the other half. I love to be able to pull out a baggie full of frosting all ready to go. It's one of those things that doesn't freeze solid. It thaws quickly. I usually just set it out while my goodies are baking and it's ready to go when I need it.

What kind of desserts do you frost with cream cheese frosting?


  1. I love cream cheese frosting. I must go look at your carrot cake recipe. Looks delicious.

  2. Yum! I also LOVE cream cheese frosting. Mmmmm

  3. Love cc any way I can use it. This is new to me. Thanks
