Pismaniye (Turkish Cotton Candy) Ingredients :

  • 3 zucchinis peeled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • ¾ cup fresh dill chopped
  • ½ cup parsley chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Aleppo pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoon olive oil divided

How to Make Pismaniye (Turkish Cotton Candy)


Preheat your oven to 340°F (170 °C).


Add some baking paper on your baking tray.


Take a mixing bowl and mix the butter and sugar in it and then add the flour.
Use a spatula to remove the scraps from the plate and mix it again.


Pour in some oil simultaneously while beating the mix.


Add coconut flakes and vanilla powder and keep mixing until everything is absorbed.


Keep the mix in the fridge for 2-3 hours.


Tear off tiny balls (aim for around 1 oz/30g per ball), shape them and pull them.


Put the strings in the oven and bake at 170 °C for not more than 15 minutes. In any case,
don’t bake the sweet longer than this because they might start cracking.


Add some coconut flakes, powdered sugar, serve, and enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

Keep an eye on the sweets every few minutes while baking because they tend to get cracks and burn rather quickly.
