Dakota Women Make Mints
The party we are excited about is my mother-in-law, Rose's 90th birthday. Today, February 4, is her official birthday, however, we will have the celebration tomorrow afternoon. All her children, grand-children, great-grand-children, friends, and neighbors will be here.
If you want to make these fabulous candies, here is the recipe.
l - 3 oz. package of cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon peppermint flavoring
2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
Mash cheese, add flavoring and coloring. Mix in sugar and knead with hands until like pie dough. Roll into marble sized balls, dip into granulated sugar and press firmly into molds. Remove from mold at once on waxed paper. Let dry 24 hours.
HAPPY 90th BIRTHDAY, ROSE
