“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!”
