Ingredients

1
package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1
tablespoon butter, softened
3
cups powdered sugar
1/4
teaspoon mint or peppermint extract
Red food color, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In food processor, place cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar. Cover; process, using on-and-off pulses, until mixture comes together into a ball. Add mint extract; process just until incorporated.
  • 2 Place dough on work surface sprinkled with additional powdered sugar. Add a few drops food color to center of dough; knead until dough is evenly tinted. Roll dough into ropes; cut into small pieces. Roll each piece into a ball; place on waxed paper.
  • 3 Flatten each ball with a fork. Let stand 2 hours or until dry.

Expert Tips

If you don’t have a food processor, you can mix the dough with an electric mixer or by hand with a wooden spoon.

Store the mints in the refrigerator, or freeze in a freezer container for 2 to 3 months.

Try different extracts for different flavored mints…leave them white, or tint with green food color or the color of your choice.
