4 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
5 drops food color -- if desired
1/2 teaspoon peppermint -- spearmint or wintergreen extract

Preparation / Directions:

Cover cookie sheet with waxed paper. Mix 3-1/2 cups powdered sugar, the milk and food color. Knead in extract and enough additional powdered sugar to make a smooth, creamy mixture. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Place about 1-inch apart on cookie sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork to about 1/4-inch thickness. Let stand uncovered at room temperature about 1 hour or until firm. Turn candies over and let stand about 1 hour or until tops are firm. Store mints in airtight container. Divide mixture in half. Shape one half into flattened round on cloth-covered board generously sprinkled with granulated sugar. Roll in sugar to coat. Roll mixture 1/4-inch thick. Cut with 1-inch cutters. Place mints on waxed paper. Repeat with remaining mixture. Continue as directed. ABOUT 8 DOZEN CANDIES.
