I have tried various butter mint recipes in my years but this is truly the best one yet. I also like the fact that they freeze well.

The recipe came from a former pastor's wife, which was in the church cookbook.

Let dry for a couple of minutes. Spoon into decorator w/ small tip and squirt onto waxed paper. Let set for at least 12 hours (24 hours is better) to dry then transfer in ziplock bags & store in freezer or store in air tight containers or just set out in pretty dishes uncovered.

I actually use my Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator for this. You can also use a ziplock bag with a corner snipped just a bit and squeeze out in a swirlling motion to make them pretty.

This is the consistency. Hope you can tell by the pic, which isn't that good.
