Butter Mints

    Mixing in the powdered sugar was a little difficult. I didn't get 10 (1/4 cup)portions-definitely less. My first portion got a little dry so I added a small amount of softened butter and that solved the problem. I kept the other portions covered while I rolled & cut. Thought these tasted really good. Served them with a cookie platter at a coctail party.

    I added a smidge of butter flavored extract. Once the powdered sugar and extracts were added into the saucepan and roughly stirred, I transferred it to my stand mixer and added Wilton coloring gel and made sure it was throughly mixed. Was a little sticky so I rolled it out on cutting boards that were dusted with powdered sugar. Has a soft fondant texture until it dries. Delicious mints. Not overpowering.
