Directions:
Directions:
1. Line two baking sheets with wax paper, tape down the ends and set them aside. Fit a large pastry bag with a medium star tip
2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and peppermint extract until it's smooth. Add the powdered sugar and mix it until you achieve the consistency of thick cream cheese frosting. The peaks should remain quite stiff and not melt down when the mixer is stopped. Add more powder sugar if necessary.
3. You can tint your cream cheese mints any color using food coloring.
4. Fill the pastry bag with the minty mixture and pipe little kisses onto the prepared baking sheets. You should get about 250 of them.
5. Let them sit for about an hour to set then store them in the fridge or freezer. They'll last about a month in the fridge and up to four in the freezer.
