  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup milk

Helpful Tip

Variations: For a different flavor, substitute 1 teaspoon of vanilla or almond extract for the mint extract.


  1. Mix butter and sugar until fluffy.

  2. Blend flour and salt and add alternately to butter mixture with milk and extract. Add food coloring to milk so it gets into dough evenly.

  3. Add in confetti and mix well. Dough will be stiff.

  4. Roll into 1″ balls and flatten slightly.

  5. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 350° F for 15 minutes. Do not let them brown.

  6. Cool and roll in powdered sugar.
