Lovely recipe-will try to get it made at home or will try to get it in a deli or large confectionery-thanks for the recipe-still have the taste of mint chocolates brother used to bring when coming back from the united states-mint is ethereal in taste-I view it thus
I've made cream cheese mints like these many times, but never the pinwheel style. Will give it a try soon. Also, they're delicious as other flavors. I've personally made them orange, lemon, lime and strawberry in the past as well as the mint. Just color according to the flavor you choose.
actually I wouldn't even give them one star. threw them in the garbage. my niece took a bite and spit it out.
Yum. Tweaked using molded mints recipe...use half the cream cheese, 1/2 t. vanilla, 3/4t. flavoring, coloring (mix until smooth) and one box confectioners sugar...a little at a time until incorporated. Use concentrated paste icing color (doesn't alter mixture consistency when making deeper colors).
this is a good recipe for cream mints. you could use any color combo to make for any holiday. just use candy coloring as regular will make the recipe off
We've used this base recipe in our family for years. They are so good. You can easily change the flavoring up on them too. YUMM! The pinwheel design can be hard to make, which is the only reason this recipe doesn't get 5 stars from me.
These taste like the inside of a peppermint patty. I had to add 3 tablespoons of water to be able to knead it all together. I also cut it into 1/4 inch slices, not 1/2 inch slices.
These were a little tricky, but pinwheel cookies are a little difficult for me as well. I am hosting a baby shower soon and was looking for something different to make. These are perfect. I can already see different color combinations to match occasions!
Yummy. Yummy. Yummy!!!
Good, but were really rich and used a lot of powdered sugar
