To make the cookies:

  • Sift dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt) in one bowl
  • With an electric mixer, beat butter, egg, sugar and vanilla on medium speed. Slowly add dry ingredients and mix until cookie dough forms.
  • Form a cookie dough sphere and wrap it with plastic. Refrigerate for one hour.
  • Remove from fridge and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll cookie dough on a floured surface. Cut into circles with a cookie cutter.
  • Place each cookie on a lined baking sheet, about an inch apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes and cool on a wire rack.

To decorate:

  • Beat butter, icing sugar and milk with an electric mixer (starting on the lowest speed, making your way up to the highest). These ingredients will make up your buttercream frosting.
  • Tint the buttercream with violet gel food coloring and mix until buttercream is completely colored.
  • Roll white fondant into 1-inch spheres. Roll each sphere into long strips (about 3-4 inches long) then fold slightly. Start wrapping both ends and twist: this will form your unicorn horn.
  • Brush with silver food dust.
  • With an offset spatula, frost each cookie. Top with sprinkles and one fondant horn.
