  • Use a food processor to pulse the cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar until it reaches a crumble.
  • Add extract and pulse until it becomes a ball of dough.
  • On a non-stick surface coated in powdered sugar, break the dough into 2 even chunks, set one aside.
  • Place a few drops of hot pink food coloring on the dough and knead, adding powdered sugar as needed to prevent sticking, until the color is uniform.
  • Coat a rolling pin in powdered sugar and roll the dough 1/8th inch thick. Use the cookie cutter to cut hearts and use a thin metal spatual to transfer them to a sheet of wax paper. Continue rolling and cutting the dough until there is about 2 tablespoons left.
  • Mix the extra dough into the dough you set aside and kneead, adding powdered sugar as needed to until it is a uniform light pink color.
  • Repeat step 5.
  • Allow the heart shaped mints to dry on wax paper for at least 2 hours before serving.

  1. We made these as Girl Scouts when I was a kid, I’m pretty sure, and I forgot all about them until this post! Thanks for sharing. I know what we’re making for Valentine’s Day this year! ; )

  2. These candies look so good. Yum. I use Young Living essential oils, and I”m thinking I could put a few drops of peppermint in with vanilla extract. I think I may try this for my next gathering. Thank you. #smallvictories.

    Come Back Soon!
