Wedding Cream Cheese Mints
2 pounds powdered sugar
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
Assorted food coloring
1. Combine powdered sugar and cream cheese in a mixer bowl and beat well.2. Divide the mixture into four balls. Work with just one ball at a time and put the remaining balls into individual plastic bags so they don’t dry out.
3. Add food coloring and flavoring, one drop at a time. Knead by hand until you get the color you want. Remember, you can always add, but you can never take away!
3. Roll into little balls. Dip into sugar and press into rubber candy molds.
4. Unmold onto cookie sheet that has been covered with wax paper. Allow to dry and harden.
Can be made ahead of time and frozen until the wedding. I usually make four different colors and flavors of mints – white or yellow with lemon flavoring, pink with peppermint, green with wintergreen, etc.
As the story opens, Mary Dell is only minutes away from walking down the aisle to marry Donny, but she is having second thoughts. Why was she so hesitant to go through with the wedding? Were her concerns legitimate, or was this just a normal case of wedding jitters? Have you been or known a bride who had second thoughts in the days or hours before a wedding ceremony?
Lydia Dale and Graydon were in love once and planned to marry. However, circumstances and miscommunication got in the way of their plans. Now that circumstances have thrown them back together again, Lydia Dale and Graydon are very different people than they were previously. What has changed about them? Are those changes for the better or the worse?
