  • 1

    3 oz pack of cream cheese, softened

  • 1

    tsp peppermint extract

  • 3

    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.
