Cotton Candy Day

Cotton Candy

Who doesn't love cotton candy? The sugary snack has become linked to so many of our family outings and activities. You can find it at the carnival; at the fair; at the circus; at the zoo. Anywhere you go - there it is!

Cotton Candy was originally called Fairy Floss. It was called this because it was made with Flossine sugar. The first Cotton Candy machine was patented in 1899 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton. They brought it to the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904.

So to continue with my December Cookie theme, here is a recipe for Cotton Candy Cookies:

Cotton Candy Sugar Cookies

 Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes



  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4-1/4 cups flour
  • Extra sugar for pressing cookies (Use red and green for Christmas cookies)



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream together the granulated sugar, powdered sugar, butter, and cooking oil. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Add dry ingredients, (the next four ingredients) and mix to incorporate. Roll dough into small balls about the size of a quarter. With a heavy bottomed crystal vase with a decorative bottom, or other cookie press, dip in sugar to coat well. Smash each ball of dough so they are spread out and flat. Leaving an imprint and sugar. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes, until the edges just start to turn slightly brown. Do not bake too long. Cool sugar cookies on the baking sheet briefly then transfer to wire rack to cool the rest of the way.
