recipes collected over 35 years.
1 (3 oz package) cream cheese at room temperature
4 drops food coloring (mint-green, lemon-yellow, strawberry-pink)
1 teaspoon flavoring extract
1 tablespoon milk
1 pound confectioners sugar
Stir all but the confectioners sugar together until well mixed; then mix all
the sugar into the cream cheese mixture; kneading it with your hands. When
completely mixed, roll into a large sausage like roll. Break off small amounts
and roll into balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Place balls on waxed paper, and
press flat with fork dipped in confectioner's sugar. Let dry until tops are
just dry, then flip and dry out the underside. Store in airtight container
