Cotton Candy Sugar Cookies
Bring back memories of your childhood with these extremely soft and chewy melt in your mouth cookies packed with cotton candy flavor. Make them taste and look like cotton candy by adding blue and pink food coloring to them. Perfect for those moments you want cotton candy but cannot find any around.
Right now in Lebanon, TN, there is a huge and popular fair going on. It has always been called the Wilson County Fair but as of this year it is becoming the Tennessee State Fair. It is the absolute best thing to do every year in August! From the rides to the food, it is not something you want to miss out on.
I grew up going to this fair and have already taken my boys this year! We rode all the kid rides with our boys, ate ice cream, pet farm and exotic animals, played fair games and won hammers, ate fair food, and left for home with a bag of cotton candy. Even after all of that, there is still so much we didn't get to do and plan to venture back later this week.
Growing up, one task I was always expected to accomplish when going to the fair was to grab my Dad a bag of cotton candy. Getting this bag of cotton candy just became tradition. Every year on the last night of the fair, I would be running around trying to find a concession open to get a bag of cotton candy. It's not even my task anymore but I still find myself grabbing a bag to take home.
But what happens when you can't find a place like the fair to go to for cotton candy. Well I decided it was time to fix that by making these cotton candy flavored sugar cookies. These are extremely soft and chewy cookies perfect for any occasion. It took me a few batches and taste testing to get the cotton candy flavor strong enough but I've definitely found a winner!
