Ok, 5 1/3 tablespoons of butter. Blend that with 2 cups of powdered sugar.  Then add 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla, and 1/4 cup milk.  Then blend with 2 1/2 more cups powdered sugar.  Dye your color and frost.  I love this frosting because it gets hard so you can stack items.  I have made about 5 dozen Valentine sugar cookies.  I have used this recipe for years.
