Butter Mints

MintsPicture courtesy of the internet.

I don't remember where I found this recipe. All I know that is when I have a hankering for mints, I make a batch of these tasty little morsels. Very easy to make.

5 tbsp. butter
2 tsp. evaporated milk
1 tsp peppermint flavoring
1 lb. box confectionery sugar
Food Coloring

Soften butter. Add milk and flavoring. Mix well. Sift in sugar. Mix well. Add a few drops of food coloring to make pretty pastel shades. Knead with hands. Mold or roll into snake shapes and snip with a scissor or butter knife. Let dry out on waxed paper. Store in tin.
