My mother used to make butter mints all the time at Christmas. You know, the little pillow-like pieces of sugar that taste of minty goodness. Derek and I made some last night, and I must admit: I forgot how wonderful even the dough is! It's the easiest recipe on the planet and SOO good-great to add to that plate of cookies you take your friends and neighbors.
1/4 cup of butter-nearly melted
3 oz. cream cheese
1lb powdered sugar
1/4 tsp mint extract
