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)

How to Make Buttered Walnut Cream Cheese Frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. This is the perfect Carrot Cake icing. I only use this one on my MawMaw Goodman's Carrot Cake (recipe posted)
  2. Let cream cheese and butter get to room temperature
  3. Cream butter and cream cheese together until fluffy
  4. Add vanilla and beat in good
  5. Add confectioners sugar 2 cups at a time beating between each addition
  6. If 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 :)
  7. Add walnuts and fold into frosting
  8. let 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.
