This is an old recipe from my MawMaw and it is just wonderful! Can't have a carrot cake or pumpkin bread without it!! It is so buttery and just dang darn-it good :) You can replace the walnuts with your choice of nuts or leave them out to make Butter Cream Cheese Frosting (Icing)

Ingredients

1 pkg
8 oz cream cheese
1 stick
salted butter
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
8-10 c
confectioners' sugar
1/2 c
chopped walnuts (or more if you like it really nutty) leave out if you want buttered cream cheese frosting

Step-By-Step

1This is the perfect Carrot Cake icing. I only use this one on my MawMaw Goodman's Carrot Cake (recipe posted)
2Let cream cheese and butter get to room temperature
3Cream butter and cream cheese together until fluffy
4Add vanilla and beat in good
5Add confectioners sugar 2 cups at a time beating between each addition
6If frosting is a good thick fluffy after 8 cups finish with next step. If it is to thin keep adding confectioners sugar 2 cups at a time. I have used up to 14 cups to get it thick enough :)
7Add walnuts and fold into frosting
8let set at room temperature until ready to use or refrigerate for up to 7 days. If you refrigerate let frosting come to room temperature before frosting cakes.
