Cream Cheese Frosting

This is my go-to cream cheese frosting. It will make enough frosting for 12 cupcakes and can easily be doubled.

YIELD: 1 CUP (ENOUGH TO FROST 12 CUPCAKES)
ingredients:
4 oz cream cheese at room temp
1/2 stick (4 Tbsp) butter at room temp
1/2 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/2-2 cups powdered sugar

directions:
Place the cream cheese in the bowl of your mixer. Beat on medium-high until completely smooth, 3-4 minutes. Add the butter and continue to cream until fluffy.

Add vanilla extract. Slowly add powdered sugar (1/4 cup at a time) until desired consistency is reached.
