had tried the mix. I decided it had set around long enough and I got excited and decided I needed to try it too. If you're not familiar with Cristin's Cookies
you should definitely check her out. She decorates adorable cookies, has great tutorials, and sells her cookie cutters as well!
So anywho...back to the cookies!
My youngest son doesn't even like sugar cookies (go figure) but he loves cotton candy...and he actually ENJOYED these cookies!
They are a very SWEET cookie. More so than your typical sugar cookie. My whole house smelled of cotton candy (I thought). And as I mentioned, my son doesn't care for sugar cookies and will usually groan, "Ugh" when I bake sugar cookies, but when I baked this flavor, he was intrigued and said, "Ummm, what's that smell!"
I really enjoyed them because I am not a royal icing fan (although I do decorate with it a lot)...I enjoyed the creaminess of this frosting. It was a nice switch!
Because the cookies and frosting are so sweet, I only frosted the top half of the cookie, making it look like puffs of cotton candy.
I didn't make these "fancy"...there's nothing exquisite about them...they're just fun and yummy! I'm not sure how long these will last (if they're limited edition or not)...but you might want to run to Target and try them for yourself if you like cotton candy. Leave me a comment if you try them and tell me what you think!
