Butter mints

1 lb. 10 X confectioners sugar5 tablespoons butter, softened2 tablespoons cold water12 drops mint pure peppermint oil1 drop food coloring (if desired)

Combine all ingredients in heavy-duty mixer or food processor. Blend until dough comes together and forms a smooth ball. Shape into small balls and place on waxed paper an inch apart. Flatten with the tines of a fork, dipping in additional confectioners sugar, if necessary, to prevent sticking. Dry for several hours at room temperature. Store airtight in the refrigerator (or freezer up to 3 months) with wax paper separating the layers.
