I make these quite often and they are so good and easy. I first ate these at a family reunion and could not find out who made them so I looked around until I found the recipe.

    ICING: Mix cream cheese, butter, vanilla and confectioner's sugar until smooth. Blend well. Ice every cracker. I make one stripe down each cracker. This makes them look prettier but you will have some icing left-over. I also rather use Town House Original Topper crackers because they have an indentation on top.
