We have had quite the discussion on Facebook over the past 24-hours as to whether Cream Cheese Mints are a Nebraska ‘thing’ or whether people in other states love them as much as we — ahm – I do. (Some on Facebook say they can’t stand them)
There were some who have never had the pleasure of tasting these mini treats. SO, I share with you the recipe. (I will make sure to add phots the the next time I’m preparing for a wedding, graduation or baptism.)
The Omaha World Herald printed a pretty cute column on the discussion.
Of course she wanted cream cheese wedding mints. Is a Nebraska wedding even legal without them?
This one has been in my family for generations
Cream Cheese Mints:
3 cups powdered sugar (Sometimes called icing sugar)
1/4 tsp. mint extract (or other flavor)
1/8 tsp. food coloring
**To make them right you also need a special rubber mold. My memory is of little leaves and roses. Some folks have used candy molds as well.
