Cream Cheese Frosting

8 oz. package of cream cheese (not light)
1 cube of margarine
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups of powdered sugar
food coloring of your choice
Sprinkle lightly with clear sugar the color of frosting.

Enjoy.  These will keep for a couple weeks in the fridge and taste great.  If you need to make a lot ahead of time, make the cookies, bake them and freeze them.  Frost for the event.
