Frosting snobbery: Cream Cheese Frosting

This is my ideal cream cheese frosting: light, smooth, and not too sweet.

Soften 6 T butter.  Cut 8 oz. cream cheese into 8 pieces and let soften.

Beat the soft butter until fluffy.  Gradually add 1 1/2 c powdered sugar and beat until very fluffy.  Add 2 t vanilla and a pinch of salt and mix.  With mixer on high, add one piece of cream cheese at a time, beating until well-incorporated and fluffy after each addition.  Thin with milk or thicken with powdered sugar, as needed.
