This ridiculously simple recipe is one that my mom used to make for us growing up. We literally devoured every single candy within minutes of it being made. I put a little twist on this by hand molding roses out of the candy dough. These are small enough to not be sinful, but big enough to count as a whole dessert.
I think these would be perfect to serve after a meal on a spring Sunday afternoon with fresh flowers adorning the table and the birds chirping outside. Sounds divine, doesn't it? I ate some last night after making these while yelling at Abby Lee Miller (Dance Moms) on my TV, covered in powdered sugar and cream cheese while my animals were trying to scale my sweatpants to get the cream cheese off my sweatshirt. Not quite as peaceful and serene as the picture I painted up there, but I still enjoyed my treat nonetheless!
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 ounces cream cheese (do not use light cream cheese!!)
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
