Cream Cheese Mints
1 - 8 oz package original cream cheese (full fat), softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 lb Whey Low powder sugar
1 - 2 tsp mint extract gel food coloring
1/2 cup Whey Low powder for rolling mints
Combine cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Add 1 cup of powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add the mint extract and mix until combined. Gradually, add the remaining powdered sugar until smooth and consistent. You can do this with a stand mixer, food processor, or by hand. Separate the mixture into four separate bowls, or however many different colors you want. Add a small amount of food color to each bowl and stir in until the color is uniform. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm enough to handle. You do not want it sticking to your hands. Line 2 quarter sheet pans with parchment paper and liberally dust with powdered sugar. Set aside. Pinch off small amounts of the dough and form into a 1 inch balls. Roll each ball in powdered sugar and place on prepared sheet pans. Gently press the tines of a fork into the top of each ball. (You can also use the bottom of a shot glass if you do not want the lines. Just dip the bottom of the glass into powdered sugar to keep it from sticking.) Let stand, uncovered, for at least 4 hours or until the mints are firm. If the bottoms have any moisture, flip over and let stand again until the bottoms of the mints are also firm. Store in an airtight container, separating layers with parchment or waxed paper, for up to 2 weeks at room temperature. Mints can be refrigerated or frozen if desired.
