Cream Cheese Frosting

I'm going to make some of my Grandma Roundy's Christmas cookies, but I wanted a better frosting than just the regular powder sugar one, so I found this! Can't wait to try it. :)

8 oz. cream cheese
5 Tbsp. softened butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c + powdered sugar

"Beat 8 oz. cold cream cheese (not rock solid, but it means you can use it straight out of the refrigerator) with 5 Tbsp. softened butter and 2 tsp. vanilla until combined. Gradually add 2 c. powdered sugar that has been sifted after measuring. Continue to add more sifted powdered sugar until you reach a consistency and sweetness that fits your taste.

"No softening the cream cheese (though you do have to plan ahead with the butter). No whipping to a certain point that occurs for all of ten seconds before it's ruined. The hardest part is not eating the frosting straight from the bowl by the spoonful."
