Amy's Cream Cheese Frosting

We celebrated Little Miss Melody's First Birthday this past weekend.  It was wonderful and I talked a little bit about it in my post yesterday where I shared the Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms that I served as an appetizer for her party.

We had quite the feast for her birthday, most of which I have shared with you previously but a couple of new things that I want to post about in the next couple of days, hoping that you enjoy them as much as we did this weekend.

Today, I would like to share my daughter, Amy's, recipe for cream cheese frosting.  I am not a frosting lover but I do enjoy this frosting that I find to be much lighter than most.  It meets all my requirements for the perfect recipe.  It is easy peasy and delicious!  I hope that you enjoy it.

Amy's Cream Cheese Frosting

1 stick butter, room temperature
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, room temperature
1 c. powdered sugar
1 (8 oz) pkg Cool Whip 

In large bowl of stand mixer affixed with paddle attachment, place butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar.  Beat at low speed until blended and then at high speed until light and fluffy.  Add cool whip and beat until well combined.  Frosting is now ready to be used as is or tinted to color of choice.  Print Recipe
