I know we have this thing with unicorn cupcakes...

But I found a unicorn cookie recipe instead!



Here is the source: Yay unicorn cookies! (You will have to scroll down a bit for the recipe itself- but I'll also transcribe it here)

Ingredients
Regular cookie
3/4 cup part shortening (1/4 cup), part butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp lemon flavoring or 1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Unicorn it up!
*Disco Dust, Rainbow - $8
*Wilton's Sparkle Gel, white - $4
*Rainbow Dragees - $8
*Star Sprinkles - $2
*Food Coloring, Standard + Neon - $7
*Cheap Paint Brush

[u]Cookie time![u]
Step 1 - Make the dough - Mix well shortening, sugar, eggs, and flavoring. Blend flour, baking powder and salt; stir in.

Step 2 - Separate and color dough before cooling - Separate the dough into several sections and use food coloring to unicorn them up. Then place the dough in ziploc baggies and cool them for at least 1 hour.

Step 3 - Play-dough time! - "Just like the clay and play doh, you need to roll snakes. But sugar cookies are MUCH more sensitive. Be very careful, this will take patience and dedication. I started with red, made lots of lines, then added the next color and just kept pressing them together from there on. Until I was out of colors. Make sure to use a flour'd surface and use that to help you roll, too. Once the cookies sit on the cookie sheet, (next step), the flour absorbs into the cookies and they don't have a white powder all over them"

-While you are doing this, do take the time to preheat your oven to 400º F-

Step 4 - Make those snakes into pretty unicorn poop!- "Now that you have your thick poop rainbow, it needs to be shaped as such. This part happens swiftly and you don't have much room for error because the dough is so fragile. Take your poop snake and gently flop it onto the ungreased cookie sheet. Once you have it there, just start winding. Decide how your unicorn rolls and let the poops form themselves. Be gentle though, they will break and mess up your spirals. If you need to make any repairs, just use your fingertip and lightly sweep it back into the portion where it broke off. That re-connects the exterior so you don't get poopy cracks. Pinch your tips and then you're done! Just bake them and wait. (As per the recipe, you may want to add a minute or 2 because these are thicker.)" The recipe states 6 to 8 minutes for baking.

Step 5 - Ooh la la! Time for some bling - "Take those fancy and expensive dragees and push them into the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. You want to lightly break the surface of the cookie and make sure that your balls are settled nicely inside. Then you can let the cookies chill and harden loosely around the dragees. Make sure that they are pushed in, more than half way, because they may roll out later."

Step 6 - Sparkle party! - "Now that they've had time to cool off, it's time to add the sheen! This thin coat of Wilton's Glitter Gel will be sure to keep your poops looking fresh. Just squeeze it out all over the cookie in spirals and then start brushing it out in a smooth coat all over the cookie. You need to hold it in your fingers so that you can turn and brush as needed. Make sure to manipulate the gel into the holes and cracks so that it has a better finish. This stuff is great! It doesn't dry HARD, but it stiffens up pretty well after it's had time to dry, and it's in a thin layer. Just don't stack them. :)"

Step 7 - Cover it with sprinkles and glitter! - Exactly what it says on the tin

Step 8 - Enjoy! - Unicorns optional.

These look awesome 8D
I would have a go at making these myself as I love baking and decorating things, but I'd be worried about the reaction I would get when comandeering the kitchen to make unicorn poop biscuits XD
I dont think I can get away with flour everywhere when not making dutch apple pie or normal cakes.

Ah well! *goes and converts too understandable measurements*

But what the hell are Dragees?

...I wanted to say the same thing.

And I think I'd like to try that ffff. It's probably going to be a disaster, but I think I will~
