Butter Mints (aka Wedding Mints)

Hey Everybody! 
I don’t know about you, but I have always loved those silly little mints that people have at their weddings and baby showers etc….it truly is silly i know, but i got so excited  when i found this recipe that i just couldn’t resist sharing it with you all!   😉

Ingredients:

  • ½ cups Butter, Slightly Colder Then Room Temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • 1 Teaspoon Peppermint Extract (More if needed- & you can also flavor with Vanilla, Orange, Lemon, or other flavorings of your choice!)
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt
  • 1 pound Powdered Sugar, Plus More For Hands

Directions: In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat butter on high speed until light and fluffy. Scrape sides of bowl and add heavy cream, peppermint extract and sea salt. Beat until thoroughly combined. Add powdered sugar about 1 1/2 cups at a time, mixing on low until thoroughly combined. Repeat until all powdered sugar has been added. Turn speed up to high and beat for approximately 4 minutes or until very light and fluffy. At this point you can taste the mint mixture and add additional mint flavor if not strong enough.

To shape mints: Roll dough between hands into a snake about the size of your pinkie for small mints, or the size of your thumb for larger mints. Cut into desired length. Tip: If dough sticks to hands, coat hands in additional powdered sugar.

Place mints on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and allow to dry at room temperature for 12 hours.

Store mints in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 1 Pound

Bon Appéitit!
