Wow, so delicious and fun! I made these for a Christmas party that I'm going to, and they are amazing! I did use 4 ounces of cream cheese instead of three for this recipe. I used 5-6 drops of food coloring per batch. I used rubber candy molds in the shape of a Christmas tree and jingle bells to shape them, which was time consuming but very fun, and they look so cute. The key to using the candy molds: refrigerate dough for a bit, then fill the candy mold with granulated sugar, then dump out the sugar (you want the inside of the mold to have a layer of sugar). Make marble sized balls out of the dough, then roll them in granulated sugar and press into mold. Remove the candy from the mold by just putting it over the cookie sheet lined with wax paper(sprinkled with sugar)and press it out. After a few, they will start to just fall out. I made the original recipe with peppermint and also made some using cinnamon oil. . . it is hard to pick a favorite, but my mom LOVED the cinnamon! Definitely worth the time!
