Well, it's official...I've just made Unicorn Poo Cookies. Yes, that's right. My kids saw this somewhere and I let them have free reign and this is where it got me. I have to admit, it was pretty fun and they are cute. So this year for Christmas, I get to tell everyone that we made Unicorn Poo cookies for Santa. I'm sure he will be thrilled!
We used Cook's Illustrated Soft & Chewy Sugar Cookie recipe and just added food coloring to each dough ball. Then you roll a small hunk of each of the colored dough's into a snake and then roll those together and kinda twist, then shape into, well, poo shapes.
We tried brushing pearlized edible glitter on them before baking them, but it didn't go well, so we just left them alone. Even though we really overworked the dough by adding the food coloring, they still came out soft, chewy, and really tasty.... thank goodness for Santa's sake. I'm so embarrassed. I can't believe I'm posting this.
|End result. They are prettier than Mr. Hankey.|
