Unicorn Cutout Cookies

No dessert is more magical than these unicorn cutout cookies! And this sugar cookie recipe is simply scrumptious! While I already owned the unicorn cookie cutter, it took a little while to brainstorm how best to decorate them. Obviously, the horn had to be golden- it is a unicorn after all!

Luckily, they make an edible, golden spray paint. So I sprayed the horn a shimmering gold, then frosted the entire cookie in pure, white frosting. And for the mane and tail, it had to be tie dyed blue and pink. This was easy enough to do by simply alternating additions of the two different colors in a piping bag fit with a flower drop tip. I used a Wilton tip #224, but any brand will do. From there, it was just a matter of adding some rainbow sprinkles on the mane and tail to round out the aesthetic.

Units Scale


  • 2 1/4 cups Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup Unsalted butter, soft

  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt together.

  3. Add the dry ingredients to the mixture and beat until incorporated. Then pop the dough in the fridge for an hour. Roll the chilled dough until it’s 1/4 inch thick, then use a unicorn shaped cookie cutter to create individual cookies.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. If the horn of the unicorn turns brown, remove the cookies from the oven. Allow the cookies to cool completely.



  1. Spray the horn of the cookie with gold spray and allow to dry completely.
  2. Divide some of the white frosting into two separate, smaller bowls. Add enough red food coloring to one bowl to turn the frosting pink. Add enough blue food coloring to the second bowl to turn the frosting bright blue. Alternating adding the different colored frostings to a piping bag fit with a drop flower tip (aka Wilton #224).
  3. Using the undyed white frosting, frost the body and legs of the unicorn. Pipe the mane and tail on the unicorn. While the mane and tail are still tacky, decorate them with some sprinkles.
