1 (8 ounce) package
sifted confectioners' sugar
Only one problem. Vanilla extract amount is left out. Researched another recipe and found 2tsp is normal. Might want to add that to the recipe
Super easy and super good.
Loved this frosting. Good on cakes, cupcakes, but especially pumpkin bread. Nice for those that love nuts on their sweets.
This was very creamy! I halved the recipe and used it on pumpkin cake III. I only used 1/4 cup of minced walnuts (kids not a fan of nuts in their desserts) and a small amount of almond extract (didn't have vanilla).
I did not have enough confectioner's sugar, so I replaced 1 cup with light brown sugar, added a tablespoon of peanut butter, a tablespoon of milk, 1/2 cup of coconut and some yellow food coloring. I frosted a banana cake with this recipe and it turned out yummy!
This is the best Cream Cheese frosting I have found yet! Everyone loves this. I only use the nuts occasionally, depending on what I am making, but I usually just make according to directions and omit the nuts. It's perfect!
Served this many times and everyone says it's scrumptious!!!
I used much less sugar and it was still excellent!
