      These are very good, I used Mint flavoring. Used a hand mixer for blending the butter and cream cheese together.worked great, also mixed in more powdered sugar when shaping the balls and flattened with a fork. Next time I think I will use a pastry tube instead of shaping into balls then flattening. Thanks for the recipe.

      Great recipe! My powdered sugar is stored in a glass canister, so I weighed the two pounds out on my scale. I used almond extract, which everyone loved! Next time I am trying creme de menthe! :)

      I've been using this recipe for years and my kids love them. I typically make green, pink (trying for red!) and white at Christmas.
