The flavor is good, but this (to me) is not frosting. It is a glaze. I made it 2 times thinking I did something wrong the 1st time. The second time I almost doubled the powdered sugar and it was still extremely runny. Would be great on cinnamon rolls or cookies, wasn't so great on my carrot cake. In researching other cream cheese frosting recipes, they don't call for milk. So next time I will omit the milk. The others also have atleast 3 cups of powdered sugar. Making those changes should change this glaze into a frosting ;)

Wow, this was easy...and so tasty! Just the right consistency for cookies...(not at all runny for me, and even better after refridgerated the next day). It stores well too...if you like to frost some of the cookies tomorrow...:)

This is a delicious recipe! I changed the recipe a bit b/c I first made it for my sister and she has some food allergy issues. I substituted 1/2 lb of powdered sugar for 1/4 cup honey and eliminated the milk and cream. I also added 1 1/2 tsp of freshly ground cinnamon. The frosting still came out great and was very easy to spread and had perfect consistency. The fact that can make substitutions and still have a great frosting is the hallmark of a great recipe to me!!!! Keep 'em coming!!!

This is very good! I used it to frost the Dark-Chocolate-Cake-2496. I didn't add any milk to this, since I want to frost it thick. I used twice the vanilla, as other recommend. The only thing I wasn't sure of is the "Pinch of Salt" that is listed in the ingredients, but not listed in the steps. I didn't add any salt.

Great flavor and texture! I paired this recipe with the overnight cinnamon rolls recipe also found here on this site. I did make a few changes. I only used 2 cups of powdered sugar and just 2 tbsp of whole milk. I omitted the cream. It was perfectly sweet, creamy, and spreadable. If I use this recipe for a cake, I will use only 1 tbsp of whole milk. Thanks so much for a fantastic cream cheese frosting recipe!

This is by far the best cream cheese frosting I've ever eaten! And it's so easy to make! I wish I could rate it 10 stars! Thanks, Riffraff

I really liked it. I used french vanilla coffee cream because I didn't have the ordinary type. It added nice flavor.

Just made this frosting for my hubby's bday cake. I only added a splash of half & half to the sugar/butter/cream cheese & vanilla mixture & it came out perfect & heavenly delicious!
