Ingredients

  • for the cookies:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 8 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 teaspoons milk or cream as needed
