    Jellyqueen's Note:

    This is an Adopted Recipe. As the reviews have stated, they really do not taste like cotton candy...more like an old fashion tea cookie. I don't really know why they are called cotton candy, but I can visualize these cooked in different colors of pastel and served on a platter, and they would indeed LOOK like cotton candy. These cookies are delicious!

      Made half a batch of these cookies, and I used cotton candy oil for flavour. The taste of the cookie is fine but they are very dry, and I did not over bake them. Need a glass of milk or a cup of tea. Half a batch and making small I got four dozen .

      WOW I made this recipe for the New Revised Bargain Basement Game 2006. I have a hard time believing that these cookies have anything under a 5 star rating!! I made these with a query eye wondering if they were going to be flavorless. I was very happy, extatic when I tried these cookies!! WOW!! My husband didn't want to try them, then when he did he wouldn't stop, he asked me why I made them, 'cause he was hooked!! They are not REALLY sweet they are just perfect. If you do use food coloring I found that red or pink does the best in coloring. I would encourage everyone to give these a try!!
