Unicorn Poop

3 cups flour
1 cup butter, very soft
1 egg at room temp
1 tsp vanilla  extract
1 3/4c sugar

Cream the butter and the sugar. Add the egg and vanilla. Add the flour, one cup at a time, scraping the bowl in between additions. Divide into 6 equal portions, color using food coloring gel, then chill in the freezer 15 minutes. Take out the dough, and divide each color until 8 equal portions. Take out one piece per color, and leave the rest in the fridge while you're working (the dough is easier to work with when cold). Roll each color into snakes, place three together on the bottom, then the other three on top. Roll together, then cut in half. For each portion, give it a twist, then wrap up in whatever shape you desire. Decorate! Then, bake at 375 for 15 minutes.

Thanks to Yvonne for introducing these to me! You can see the how-to video we both used here: http://youtu.be/vrq8v9ijPs4

Pleased as punch at our creation. Now, where did that unicorn go?
