Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar**
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Directions
  • In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. 
  • Mix in the vanilla, then gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar.

** I ended up adding about 1/2 a cup more of confectioners' sugar because I 
thought the frosting was too runny** 
This recipe gave me enough to frost about 45 cupcakes :)

Best Peanut Butter Pie!
I got this recipe from Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade and tastes ssssooo good! 
A MUST try!!  


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1 (8-ounce) tub whipped topping
  • Chocolate topping
  • 1 chocolate cookie pie crust 


In large bowl combine all the ingredients except the toppings and crust. Blend with a hand mixer.
Gently fold in whipped topping; pour into prepared crust and freeze for 2 hour
( I froze it for one hour..I couldn't wait the whole two hours..
but then again i'm a fatty). Once frozen, drizzle with chocolate topping and
re-freeze for 20 minutes.
Thaw slightly before serving and cut into thin slices because this is a rich pie.
 Sadly, I didn't take a picture of this pie but the next time I promise will :)

Lemon Meringue Pie

This recipe is from Paula Deen (my favorite!)


  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 (8-inch) cookie pie crust


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream or tartar
  • 1/4 cup sugar


In medium bowl, combine milk, lemon juice, and zest; blend in egg yolks. Pour into cooled crust.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks from. Gradually beat in the sugar until stiff.
Spread over filling; seal to edge of crust. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until
meringue is golden brown.
It was very yummy the only thing different that I did is that I froze for
an hour because it was too runny.
