Almond "Mints"

I've had these yummy "mints" (they aren't actually minty) a few times at a wedding reception and baby shower and I think they are super delicious. So I decided to whip some up. They are super easy and I was actually thinking someday this recipe would work well for decorating in place of fondant detailing.
Almond Mints

In mixer, beat 3 ounces of cream cheese. Add in 1/2 tsp almond extract, although you could use mint or even peppermint of cherry would be good too. Gradually add in 3 cups of powdered sugar. You may have to knead in the last bit yourself. Roll into small balls, then roll in sugar and press crosswise with a fork. Refrigerate and enjoy!
