Cream Cheese Frosting

1 C. Sugar
C. Milk
3 C. Flour
1 tsp. Baking powder
tsp. Salt
C. Butter
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Vanilla

1 8oz. Cream Cheese
2 tsp. Vanilla
2 Tbsp. Softened butter
1 lb. bag powered sugar

Throw all ingreadients (except 1 C. Flour) in mixing bowl together. Ad remaining flour if needed. Roll out on floured surface about ⅛ " thick. Bake at 350 for 9-10 mintues. DO NOT OVER BAKE! If the first batch is too crispy: roll thicker. If the first batch is too doughy: roll thinner.

Throw all ingredients together in bowl and mix. (Save powdered sugar for last...may need less than recipe calls for.) MAKES TWO COOKIE BATCHES WORTH OF FROSTING.

Personal Notes:
A lady named Stacy Lunsford in Kent 1st Ward gave me this recipe. It is a light and fluffy cookie. We have used it for years. It is our Christmas cookie recipe for Santa (if there is any left over for him).
