Peanut Butter Frosting
|2 cups||10 minutes|
- 0.5 cup smooth peanut butter
- 3 oz cold cream cheese
- 1.5 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 Tbsp cream or milk
- 2 Tbsp bourbon or rum (optional)
- 2.66 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
- 2 Tbsp cream, milk, or liquor or as needed
- 1 medium bowl
Stir in chopped peanuts to taste, or sprinkle them over the finished cake, if desired. Try this as a filling for any cake frosted or glazed with chocolate. Have the cream cheese cold. The butter can be cold, but it's better to have it at room temperature.
Beat in a medium bowl just until blended smooth peanut butter, cold cream cheese, unsalted butter, softened, vanilla, cream or milk, and bourbon or rum (optional).
Add one-third at a time and beat just until smooth and the desired consistency is reached confectioners' sugar, sifted.
If the frosting is too stiff, add, but do not overbeat cream, milk, or liquor or as needed.
