Christmas Cream Cheese Buttermints

Ingredients

  • 4oz Softened Cream Cheese
  • 3 3/4 cups Sifted Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Softened Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Peppermint
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Green Food Coloring

Note

Recipe adapted from Betty Crockers Cream Cheese Mints. Makes about 100 cut mints.

Directions

Step 1
In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, mix together the softened cream cheese, softened butter & sifted powdered sugar. Mix until combined. Add peppermint extract and mix until incorporated.
Step 2
Mix until the mixture forms a soft ball. Mixture will still be quite soft. Divide in half and color one half with the red coloring and the other half with the green coloring. Add enough to your desired color. If the mixture becomes too wet from the food coloring, add additional powdered sugar.
Step 3
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes or until firm enough to handle.
Step 4
On a surface lightly dusted with powdered sugar, roll the dough into thin & long ropes. With kitchen scissors cut little pieces off the end. Place on parchment paper to dry for 2 hours. Store in an air tight container in the fridge.
