about 2 T milk (add more milk in for consistency)

blend butter and sugar. stir in vanilla and milk, beat until frosting is smooth and of spreading consistency.

There is a great classic buttercream frosting recipe on wilton.com that I've used forever. It's just perfect for sugar cookies!

I just wing my frosting but it's similar to the recipe that MommyMe posted. I also use jello powder to color and flavor my frosting. Haven't had anyone not love it yet. Let us drool over those finished cookies too. ;)

Mmm, those cookies look delish! I figured out that my school's internet filter is blocking your music. I'll just have to settle for listening to it at home. :)

The recipe MommyMe suggested is THE BEST--I use it on sugar cookies, to decorate cakes, etc. You just add more milk for spreading consistency, less to pipe it out of an icing bag.
