Cream cheese mints. so cute, and pretty easy to make! Great dessert

Cream cheese mints. so cute, and pretty easy to make! Great dessert for the holidays! I always wondered how to make these! Ingredients: 8 ounces soft cream cheese (I used Philadelphia regular) 6 tablespoons soft butter (I used unsalted) 3/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract (NOT mint extract) 2 pounds sifted powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 drops red food coloring (Mine is pretty strong, so I used only one) Method: Melt the cream cheese with the butter in a heavy 3-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.  Turn off the heat, leaving the pan on the burner, and stir in about 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, food coloring, and vanilla. (My note: Add peppermint here as well.)  Stir in the rest of the sugar until well blended. Line a large baking sheet with wax paper.  Push mint mixture into a pastry bag, icing syringe or squeeze bottle with a decorative tip.  Create desired shapes for mints.  Let set 1 hour. Store between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month, or in the freezer up to 4 months.  Do not store at room temperature.Su Haggerty
