“Fancy mints. These are no cook; the cook time is time to harden. Liquid egg whites from a carton work great for splitting the recipe for two different flavor mints from the same batch. I put 1 1/2 tablespoons liquid egg whites and 1/4 teaspoon extract in each bowl with half of the cream and half of the sugar.”
