Mints, Butter (D, KLP)
Source: AOL Cooking Club
Serves: varies

2 tablespoons melted butter
1 egg white (recommend reconstituted* dried egg white powder since this isn't cooked)
3 cups 10-X confectioners' sugar
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract

Stir all ingredients, then knead until smooth, adding more confectioners' sugar as needed to make a non-sticky mix that holds its shape when molded.

Roll into 1/2" balls. Place on wax paper and press with tines of fork. Let air dry.

For pink and white, use food color in half the mixture and roll the white half flat and thin (about 1/8"), roll the pink half the same way, place pink on top of white and roll as a jellyroll. Slice and reshape slightly if needed. Dry on wax paper.

Poster's Notes:
This recipe is from the now defunct AOL Cooking Club, Candy folder. I never made it but DavandGer were regular contributors and usually pretty good.
