Peanut Butter Frosting II

I know I already have a PB frosting on here but this one is 100x better.  It is soo smooth and creamy and it tastes like nutter butters!! I would eat this for breakfast straight from the bowl if I could.  I didn't think I was going to post it so I didn't take pictures, but it's worth sharing and super easy so here ya go anyways!

recipe adapted from Ina Garten
Peanut Butter Icing:

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
Place the confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low speed until creamy, scraping down the bowl with a rubber spatula as you work. Add the cream and beat on high speed until the mixture is light and smooth.  Also I didn't use the full amount of cream, I slowly added it until I liked the consistency.  I hate living in Florida, you have to adjust everything regarding moisture. lol.
