Vegan Rainbow Unicorn Cookies Recipe

Quite literally everyone loves unicorns and rainbows, and they're clearly not going anywhere any time soon so I've put together my very own unicorn rainbow dairy free cookie recipe (catchy name I know). This is my second recipe which I've created from scratch, usually I'll refer to a baking book when I fancy baking so I'm really pleased with the results of my very own creation! I think these would make such a fun addition to a food table at a kids party, gifts for your best friends or just something fun to bake one afternoon. Plus these are suitable if you know someone on a dairy free diet! Who said vegans were boring?!

Vegan Rainbow Unicorn Cookies

To make the vegan delicious rainbow unicorn cookies you'll need:

100g  vegan butter/spread
100g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
150g self -raising flour
Three Vegan food colourings/gels
Vegan sprinkles

Optional: Lemon or Orange zest to give it some extra flavour. You'll need about 1/4 of a whole fruits zest for this. Or you could always add dark chocolate chips! 

How to bake these vegan delicious rainbow unicorn cookies:
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190c or Gas mark 5 and line your baking tray with grease proof paper. 
  2. Measure the butter and sugar into a medium sized mixing bowl and beat until creamy. Add the vanilla extract and the vegetable oil until mixed well.
  3. Gradually mix in the flour and if you're finding it hard to mix, use your hands to make the dough come together. Then pop the bowl into the fridge for 15 minutes. 
  4. Then separate the mixture into three different bowls and add a small amount of food colouring to each. You want to make sure you do not mix your colours at this point.
  5. Then using either your hands or a spoon mix the colour into your dough, do this to each of your bowls.
  6. Once the colour is mixed in, take a little bit of dough from each bowl and roll them together so it makes a ball, take enough for it to make one cookie. You should notice a marbling effect as the colours come together. Do this to all of of your mixture until you have none left.
  7. After they are all on your baking tray, add your sprinkles. Gently tap them into the dough, this helps them stick.
  8. Then put them into the oven for around 15 minutes.
  9. Once out of the oven leave the cookies to cool on the tray for 10 minutes. 
  10. These cookies should last for up to a week in an airtight tin. Delicious!
