  • 1 Stand Mixer or Hand Mixer

  • 1⅔ Cups Heavy Cream cold
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese cold, block style, unflavored
  • ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 pinch Salt

  • Add your cold cream cheese to a mixing bowl and mix on high until creamy. This should take less than 30 seconds.
