2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
5-5 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Gel food coloring, as needed
To a large bowl, add cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. Using an electric mixer, cream together until well blended.

Place a piece of wax paper on a work surface. Roll mixture into small balls, place on wax paper, and flatten each ball with a fork dipped in powdered sugar.
Let rest on wax paper until dry, at least 2 hours, then store in refrigerator up to one month. Enjoy!
