Today is gift using day! And in the spirit of gift using day I am using my new cookbook, The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook, to make unicorn poop.
Appetizing, am I right? There is a YouTube video on her website that will give you the full tutorial but for this one start by making the cream cheese cookie dough…
…and coloring it six different colors. I used orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink.
Combine the food coloring (preferably gel) with the cookie dough until it looks something like…
The book says to refrigerate for 1 hour but I found while making this that it is good to freeze it some as well.
Roll the dough into a long…
… and divide it into 12 balls. Between each step I found it necessary to put the dough back into the freezer. Each ball is rolled into 5″ logs. The logs are stacked with one of each rainbow color. Three on the bottom and three on the top. Then those are twisted and rolled into a log again. Place to cookie on the cookie sheet in a poop shape and bake.
Bake at 35o until done but not brown.
Sprinkle if desired.
- Keep cold at ALL times!
- Have an extra set of hands
- Work fast
- Don’t handle dough to much
I apologize some of the steps in tis recipe were not photographed due to the urgency needed to keep the dough cold while working with it. See book or video for full tutorial.
These are my cookies compared to the ones in the cookbook.
