1 cup of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon melted butter
food coloring (optional)

In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar, vanilla, and melted butter. Stir well. Then add milk 1 teaspoon at a time until the frosting is of desired consistency to frost cookies. If you make it too thin, you can add one tablespoon of powdered sugar at a time. Add several drops of desired food coloring and stir well.

Note: Submitted by Tammy Davis who says: "This is great for frosting sugar cookies at Christmas. I make about 10 dozen cookies for Christmas as gifts. I make about 8 or 9 different colors of frosting and add sprinkles. This is the easiest and best tasting frosting for sugar cookies. This recipe is about 50 years old and has been used in my family for generations."
