Unicorn cookies

  • Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper/silicon mats. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cornstarch and salt. Set aside.
  • In another large bowl and with electric mixer on medium, cream together the butter, vegetable shortening and sugar until light and fluffy (3-4 minutes). Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Add in the large egg and mix until combined. Then, add in the egg white and vanilla and blend until completely combined.
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Divide your dough into 3 bowls (you can add more colors if you would like).
  • Take one ball of dough and add it back into the mixer and add desired colors (repeat for each color). Refrigerate for 1.5 hours.
  • After the 1.5 hours is done, preheat oven to 375°. Take a small sized ball of each color (size of bouncy ball) an press them altogether into a ball. Roll between your palms until all combined (will look like a beach ball).
  • Roll the ball into a cylinder and coil it into a round cookie shape. Roll the edges of the cookies in the pink non-perils. Bake for 10-12 minutes and enjoy!
