Recipe Monday – Almond Cream Cheese Frosting

It was my mother’s birthday this weekend, so we made a cake in her honor (which we will now eat all by ourselves). It was a chocolate cake, and I made an almond cream cheese frosting to go with it. Absolutely delicious. And frosting is so super easy to make.

Ingredients:

 2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar (I used all the sugar this time. Next time I’ll just use 2 cups.)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon whole milk

Preparation:

Sift confectioners sugar over cream cheese in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer at moderate speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Beat in extract and milk until just incorporated (be careful not to over-beat, or mixture will become too loose).

Done.
