The first is for my favorite frosting, Cream Cheese! And the second recipe is my favorite to make, Rolled Sugar cookies.
Cream Cheese Frosting
- 1 pkg of cream cheese
- 1/2 stick of butter or margarine
- 1 lb powdered sugar
- 1 tblspoon milk (optional)
The cream cheese and butter should be at room temperature. Using a mixer cream the butter, milk and cream cheese together then gradually add the sugar until you get the consistency you like. You can add vanilla extract if you want.
I usually make mine pretty thick cuz I like the grainy feel of the frosting.
This frosting also tastes awesome sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies.
This is a recipe I found on allrecipes.com and modified it with my own secret ingredients.
Rolled Sugar Cookies

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely and decorate.
