  • 2 (8-ounce each) packages cream cheese, softened and cut into small pieces
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened and cut into small pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 cups confectioner’s sugar


  • Combine all ingredients except the sugar into a large bowl and mix on medium speed until smooth, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Reduce the mixer speed to medium low and add the confectioner’s sugar one cup at a time. Scrape down the sides of the bowl often.
  • Once all sugar is added, beat until fluffy, 3 to 6 minutes.
