Kay's Butter Cream Mints

1/2 cup butter ( I use real butter for the taste)
1 teas. salt
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (store brand)
7 cups powdered sugar ( more or less to make stiff dough)
2-4 drops peppermint oil
food coloring ( optional )
cookie sheets or flat pans for drying mints

Cream softened butter and salt together until well blended in a large bowl.
Stir in sweetened condensed milk. Add powdered sugar, mix as well as you can , turn out of bowl onto surface you have dusted with powdered sugar.

Add peppermint oil and knead until dough is smooth.

Divide into 4 pieces, roll each piece into a rope, cutting each rope into pieces with a sharp knife, one rope at a time.

Lay mints on lined pans as you cut them.
Let mellow and air dry for 1-2 days, turning once when they feel dry. Then they are ready to package or eat. Enjoy!

p.s. my problem is that I can't keep myself from eating them before they are dry!!!!!!! LOL
