  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature

  • 2 pounds powdered sugar

  • 8 drops flavoring (spearmint, peppermint, lemon or butter rum)

  • 8 drops food color


Knead sugar and cream cheese to form ball.  Divide dough into fourths.  Work with 1/4 at a time.  Wrap remaining dough in foil to prevent drying.  Add 2 drops flavoring and 2 drops coloring to the portion you are working with.  Press into molds or use a super shooter.  Let mints set while mixing and molding remaining fourths.  Store in a tightly covered tin, separating the layers with waxed paper.  These will keep indefinitely.

Easy and wonderful.
