Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy(Pişmaniye) is a Turkish sweet in fine strands made by blending flour roasted in butter into pulled sugar. It is sometimes garnished with ground pistachio nuts. Although it is sometimes compared to cotton candy, both the ingredients and method of preparation are significantly different.

Until recently pişmaniye used to be made at home in most regions of Turkey, but this tradition is now rapidly disappearing.Today the manufacturing process is partially mechanised.
