3 oz pack of cream cheese, softened
tsp peppermint extract
cups icing sugar, sifted
food colouring (optional)
Line baking sheets with waxed paper and dust with icing sugar Beat cream cheese and peppermint extract (if adding food colouring, do so now) Using a 1/2 tsp measuring spoon, form into balls the size of a cherry Place 2 rows of dough balls 1/2 inch apart then flatten with a pretty stamp or fork Lay out a couple of rows first so by the time you have reached the third row, the tops are dry enough that you can flatten without having to re-dip in icing sugar.
