This is a really great basic recipe. The 2 lbs. of powdered sugar and 8 oz of cream cheese are perfect proportions. However the food coloring and flavoring is really optional. I used only 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract for the whole recipe. Then I added a whole bottle of red food coloring and extra powdered sugar to make up for the extra liquid. I pinched the dough and rolled it into small balls, dipped them in white sugar then pressed them into candy molds. I left them out to dry for about 6 hours and then refrigerated them. They were a great success at my sister's wedding. She even took a box with her on her honeymoon!

These were not very well liked by my family. They were too strong smelling and tasting. I ended up throwing them out. This will not be made again.

Five stars if you make some changes--Our family has used this basic recipe for years but as many discovered the hard way, not with as much flavoring. Our recipe calls for 1 teaspoon total flavoring for the entire recipe. (I like 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 peppermint--almond is also very good) You also must use paste or gel food coloring or it will get too soft & sticky. The humidity can also effect this. I recommend refrigerating the dough & adding more powdered sugar if this happens. Also, we just roll into balls, dip in sugar & always use rubber molds. If done right, these are the BEST!
