Time to make: 30 mins, plus overnight drying
Total cost: $0.60 / $0.06 per serve
1 cup icing sugar
4 teaspoons trim milk
1/2 teaspoon green food colouring (optional)
1/4 teaspoon peppermint essence
extra 1/3 cup icing sugar, for dusting (do not mix it with the rest)
Step 1 Mix icing sugar, milk, food colouring (if using) and essence until they stick together. Add more milk if the mixture is too powdery. Add more sugar if it’s too moist.
Step 2 Dust the kitchen counter and rolling pin with icing sugar. Roll the mixture until it’s as thick as your little finger.
Step 3 Dip the cutter in icing sugar and cut out small shapes (circles work best). Rework the scraps until all the mixture is used.
Step 4 Set peppermint creams on wax paper to dry overnight. The following morning, turn them over to dry the underside.
