I'll be sure to include in my notes below the types of Food Color I used along with the Sprinkle Mix so you can make equally as cute and delicious soft sugar cookies as I have.
Sugar. Granulated Sugar and Powdered Sugar for added softness to the cookie
Fats. Softened Butter and Vegetable Oil
Egg and Vanilla. The egg gives lift and helps bind the ingredients together and the Vanilla adds richness of flavor too. But try adding Almond Extract. YUM!
Dry Ingredients. All Purpose Flour, Salt, Baking Soda, and Cream of Tarter.
Powdered Sugar, Butter, Coconut Oil, Vanilla Extract and Whipping Cream
Sprinkles. Unicorn Mix Sprinkles
How to make Easy Unicorn Cookies
Gather the ingredients needed along with a few supplies like a large mixing bowl, hand mixer or a standing mixer, cooling rack, parchment paper, and of course baking sheets. I also love using cookie scoops. I've used a small cookie scoop in these photos but you could also make these cookies larger by using a medium cookie scoop.
Also it's a great idea to use a preheated oven when baking. So take a moment and get your oven set to 350 degrees.
In a bowl mix together butter and granulated sugar. Make sure to scrape down sides of bowl as needed so the ingredients can cream properly and whip nicely.
Beat in egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined before drizzling vegetable oil into mixture. The mixture will be very thin at this point, go ahead and add powdered sugar and cream some more. The mixture will fluff up a bit.
In a separate bowl combine flour, cream of tarter and baking soda together. Then gradually add dry ingredients to butter and sugar mixture a little at a time. Scape down sides of bowl as needed.
Add a few drop of purple food coloring until desired color is reached. You can mix equal parts of red and blue food coloring to make purple if that is all you have.
I was recently introduced to Americolor gel colors and have fallen in love with the vibrant colors. WOW. They are so pretty and fun. A little goes a long way and so worth having.
Hand mix Unicorn Sprinkle mix into cookie dough. The mix is made up of miniature marshmallows, brightly colored sprinkles, colored chips, and more. But any fun and rainbow colored sprinkle mix will also work great!
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough balls onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper or use a cookie spray. Bake in a preheated over.
Allow cookies to cooking on cookie sheets for a couple minutes before removing to cooling rack to cool completely.
Unicorn Cookie Frosting
Making the frosting is fun. I call it add a tuft of fluff! A little Unicorn toot if you will. After cookies have cooled top each cookie with a little frosting and sprinkle with remaining sprinkle mix. All the details are included in the recipe card below.
Store cookies in a sealed container for up to a week but best if enjoyed within 2-3 days. And don't hesitate to freeze cookies for up to 3 months.
