Butter Mint
butter mints 
 
this is a recipe my mother made when i was a youngster over 50 years 
ago! 
 
3 Tbsp  butter (not margarine)
1/4 tsp  salt
1/4 cup  evaporated milk
  flavoringsfood colors
1   1lb box confectioners sugar
 
melt the butter over low heat. remove from heat and add salt and 
evaporated milk -- mix well. add a few drops of flavoring and/or food 
color you desire; mix well. add box of powdered sugar and make sure it 
is well combined. place on hard surface and knead until consistency to 
roll. here you can do one of two things: 1.roll out to a 1/4 inch thick. 
cut with small cutter to desired size/shape. decorate. or 2. divide 
mixture in half. rolling the dough under your hands form a long "log" 
between 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick. snip bite-size pieces off with kitchen 
scissors. do same to remaining mixture. keep in container with 
tight-fitting lid -- glass jars work well.
