I was really fascinated by the Unicorn Poop cookies that I had to create a festive version with the Holidays approaching. So why not make Elf Poop Cookies? They taste like peppermint because an Elf's diet surely consists of candy canes! LOL
-1/2 cup of softened butter
-1/2 cup of shortening
-1/4 cup of cream cheese
-1/2 tsp of salt
-1 cup of sugar
-1/2 tsp of peppermint extract
-2 cups of flour
-red and green food coloring
-red glitter icing
In a bowl, combine the butter, shortening and cream cheese and beat well. Then add the sugar and salt.
Beat in the egg and peppermint until combined. Then gradually add the flour.
Divide the dough in half in two seperate bowls and add the food coloring( one red and the other green).
Wrap the red and green balls of dough individually with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 20 minutes or in the fridge for an hour.
Set the oven to 375 degrees.
Remove the dough and place on some some wax paper on the counter(this way you don't need to use flour). Take a tbs size ball of the red dough and roll into a rope. Then do the same for the green dough. Then twist and coil the two together and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Once the cookies are cool I went ahead and put some red glitter icing and sprinkles on top.
