Read an Excerpt

Peppermint Patties Yields 48 patties


1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar

1/4 cup pasteurized egg whites

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon lemon extract

1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

1 drop liquid red food coloring


Beat powdered sugar and egg whites until dough forms. Add salt, lemon extract, peppermint extract, and food coloring. Knead dough until soft and smooth. If dough is too dry, add 1.2 teaspoon of water until smooth. Form 1-inch balls and lay on wax or parchment paper dusted with powdered sugar. Dip fork in powdered sugar, shake off any extra, and flatten ball with fork. Let air dry for 1 hour.


Sweet Tip: Instead of creating balls with dough, roll out dough with rolling pin and cut out peppermint patties using small shaped cookie cutters. Or try jazzing it up by dipping dried peppermint patties in white or milk chocolate and sprinkle with crushed peppermint, sprinkles, etc.
