Thank you for the PINK SATURDAYS, Beverly!
I happened upon this man spinning
Fairy Floss in Sydney.
You must know who and what I thought of when
I saw this display of pink fluff ...
Cotton Candy Sugar Cookies..."literally melt in your mouth making them the best sugar cookies"
from Carroll Pellegrinelli, About.com Desserts and Baking Guide
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup vegetable oil
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 - colored sugar can be used for holidays
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.
