A few weekends ago, my Grandma and I made these pretty buttermints. We are practicing for my wedding next spring. They were so easy to make and you can make them in any color - yay! I found the recipe on The Splendid Table's website. If you haven't listened to Lynne Rossetto Kasper's radio show, I really recommend it. She interviews interesting guests and shares delicious recipes.
We rolled the buttermint dough into balls, dipped them in sugar, and pressed them into a rose shaped candy mould. I love the effect of the sugar, they look so sweet and whimsical. Give them a try! Lynne suggests a coffee flavored variation that I have to try - what could be better?
