CREAM CHEESE MINTS
I found an old-time recipe called Cream Cheese Mints that my Aunt Millie used to make every December. The hoard of cousins that arrived for dinner on December 25th would just devour these little morsels by the handfuls.
These Cream Cheese Mints also make a lovely sweet treat from your kitchen for a friend or neighbour.
