Unicorn Poop

You may have seen on my instagram and/or twitter that I made some colorful sparkly cookies yesterday. I've been eyeballing these for awhile but didn't have a reason to make them. Today we're having a work party for my boss' birthday and it's a "pink theme" so I figured it's a perfect time to let the unicorn poops drop.



While it was tedious and took a long time, it's a very simple recipe. Just your basic homemade sugar cookie recipe! This is NOT paleo, clean or healthy in any way. Totally regular back in the day sugary fatty goodness.


What you need:
1/4 cup of shortening (Crisco)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

I needed a lot so I doubled all of the above.

What you do:

  • Mix shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix very well. 
  • Sift the flour into the wet mixture
  • Add baking soda and salt
  • Mix it all into a dough and let chill in the fridge for an hour
  • After an hour, heat oven to 400F
  • Divide the dough into 4 (or however many colors you want) and add food coloring, mix
  • Take a small amount of each color and ball it all together, roll it out long and twist it into a poop pile shape. 
  • Cook on 400F for about 8-9 minutes.(ovens vary)





  • Place the cookies on a cooling rack when done. 
  • Smear some glittery gel all over and decorate with unicorn thingys like stars or pearls (I used pearls, they were all I could find.)





Eat until you get a stomach ache.


Thanks for joining along on Recipe Week! If you try anything out be sure to let me know how you like it!! Have a great weekend!!


[update: this is how it's set up for the birthday boss]
