Cotton Candy Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookie Ingredients
{This recipe makes a soft sugar cookie}
3/4 c shortening
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
2 c flour
2 t baking powder
1 t salt

Cream shortening and sugar together. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. I don't roll out this dough and cut shapes out of it I just roll into balls and it will flatten out and make perfect circles. Unless you want different shapes I suggest not wasting your time by rolling the dough out. It's my least favorite part of making sugar cookies so I'm glad I found out how to avoid that.

Bake 350 for 9-10 min
Cotton Candy Frosting
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 t vanilla
milk - add til you get your desired consistency
4-5 drops of cotton candy flavor
My MIL bought this for us because she knows how much we love cotton candy, cotton candy ice cream and cotton candy salt water taffy - we're fiends

Ice cookies - we chose making two different colors and slightly mixing them together

betta recognize!
