My little 4 year old is in a unicorn phase. Or a princess horsey phase, as we like to call them. We have a unicorn costume I bought years ago for her older sister for Halloween. My little 4 loves to pull it out of the closet and run around in it. Since she is obsessed with unicorns right now, I figured she'd love these Unicorn Poop Cookies. She did. And so did everyone else.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cup flour
Pour sprinkles onto a plate and set aside. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Mix until combined, then add dry ingredients. Mix until ingredients are well
combined. Divide dough into 4 pieces. Add food coloring to each piece (pink/red, blue, yellow and green) and mix each piece
until dough is evenly colored. Break off a small piece of each color of dough, about 1 teaspoon, and roll each piece into a rope about 1/4 inch thick. Place a rope of each color together and roll together until the rope is about 1/2 inch thick. Roll the rope up to make a circle, then roll the outer edges in the sprinkles. Place on a greased cookie sheet and repeat with remaining dough. Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes.
