Disappointing if you're after the bourbon flavor, which of course I was. Because I'm very familiar with this classic cream cheese frosting, what happened with this is just what I expected, so I should have known better. If you're looking for a rather thin glaze, then 5 T. of bourbon might work just fine. However, if you want a nice, thick, spreadable *frosting,* then 5 T. of bourbon is at least 4 T. too much. I used 1 T., and found I still had to add extra powdered to make it stiffer. With only that 1 T. of bourbon, we were not able to taste it at all. Whether you use bourbon or any other liquid in this cream cheese frosting recipe, start out adding a little at a time - and certainly not 5 tablespoons!
