  • 19.**Frosting: What I use. Same as listed above. I end up putting in the entire stick of butter and well drained (1/4 cup) crushed pineapples. DO NOT OVER DO ON THE JUICE or the frosting will be thin. Drain pineapples well, I squeeze it. If you must add more confectioners sugar. I usually dont have too. I don't make my frosting very sweet. This carrot cheesecake is plenty sweet and this icing compliments is so well. I thought it would be to much, BUT OHHHHHHH is it out of this world!
