Cotton Candy Cookies

Start by grabbing your cookie dough, Betty Crocker™ food coloring, and cotton candy oil.

 

Cotton Candy Cookies

Cut the tube of Pillsbury™ sugar cookie dough in half. Mix one half with 1/2 teaspoon cotton candy oil and 5 drops pink food coloring gel. Mix the other half with 1/2 teaspoon cotton candy oil and 8 drops of blue food coloring gel.

 

Cotton Candy Cookies

Scoop tablespoon-sized mounds of dough and set them about an inch apart on parchment paper-lined baking pans.

Then pop the pans in the oven for about 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool completely.

 

Cotton Candy Cookies

Mix up some frosting. All you'll need is about 1/3 of a tub of Betty Crocker™ Whipped Fluffy White Frosting to make some pretty pink stuff. Be sure to make a bowl of blue frosting too. Then frost the cookies.

 

Cotton Candy Cookies

Just before you serve the cookies, break of tufts of pink or blue cotton candy and set them on the cookies.

 

Cotton Candy Cookies

The cotton candy will slowly begin to melt once it hits the moist frosting, so be sure to top the cookies just before serving for the best effect. Within an hour the spun sugar will turn to a pile of colored sugar, and that won't be nearly as much fun for your party guests. 

These cookies are so easy to make and so much fun, it's like bringing a piece of the carnival home. Enjoy!

Tips
