Cream Peppermint Drops

Cathy Gillespie


I found this in another old cookbook, and I haven't tried it yet. It looks like a challenge.

Stove Top


1/2 c
cold water
2 c
essence of peppermint


1Put water and sugar into clean saucepan and boil slowly, without stirring, until it spins thread from the tip of a spoon dipped into it. Take from the stove, leave it untouched until it is about "blood-warm", then stir steadily, always in one direction until the mixture begins to become creamy. Flavor to taste with peppermint, adding cautiously so as not to get the flavor too strong.
2Drop by teaspoonful upon waxed paper, being careful not to put the drops too close together. A candy dipper works better to do this, if you have one.
