Author: Barbara Schieving


  • 1 3 oz package cream cheese softened
  • 3 cups powdered confectioners sugar
  • 4 -6 drops of cinnamon oil
  • 4 -6 drops red food coloring I used red gel
  • granulated sugar


  • In a mixing bowl, mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar with a hand mixer on low speed until smooth. You want a pie dough consistency. Add cinnamon oil and mix well.
  • Divide the dough in half. Add red food coloring to one half to achieve the desired color. Divide each color into thirds.
  • On a powdered sugar coated surface (I used a Silpat) roll one third of the white dough into a rope and one third of the pink dough into a rope. Twist the ropes around each other.
  • Shape dough into ½ inch balls (I used the small end of a melon baller to portion out the dough) and roll in granulated sugar.
  • Place on baking sheets, flatten with a fork, and allow to stand 1 hour to harden. Store in airtight containers in refrigerator.
