These creamy, buttery mints owe their smoothness to cream cheese, which is one of their main ingredients.

Ingredients

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
1/4 cup soft butter or margarine
2 lbs. powdered sugar
Few drops food coloring: red, yellow, green
1/2 tsp. peppermint, wintergreen or lemon extract

Directions

Combine cream cheese and butter in heavy bottomed saucepan. Stir over low heat until cheese is soft, butter is melted, and the mixture is thoroughly blended.

Add the powdered sugar and stir until well combined.

Add your choice of food coloring and flavoring. If desired, you may divide the whole batch to make 2 or 3 color choices, adding extract to taste.

Roll into 1-inch balls. Place on a sheet of waxed paper, Press with a fork, or stamp with decorative cookie stamp to form design on top.

Let stand, uncovered, about 4 hours or overnight until mints are firm and outside is dry, but inside is still moist and creamy.

Comments

These mints make excellent gifts packaged in pretty tins or glass jars.
