like my face. Ro: Yeah, that’s what’s up! Both: Let’s get started! Ro: The things you will need, will be: 3 cups
of all purpose flour, Ro: 1-1/2 cups of sugar, 2 sticks of salted
butter at room temperature, Ro: 1/2 a teaspoon of almond extract, 1-1/2
teaspoons vanilla extract. Lilly: 3/4 of a cup of almond meal, 1 teaspoon

is we’re gonna whisk together some dry Ro: ingredients, into this bowl right here.
Lilly, I’m gonna have you, whisk! Lilly: Do I get to be the whisker? Ro: I’m gonna have you pour in the flour.
Lilly: I feel really important! Ro: And then this is the almond meal. Lilly:
Mmmm! Ro: Baking powder, boom! Salty-salty! Ro: Do you like nutmeg? Lilly: After that,
no… Ro: Once it’s mixed we’re just gonna set
it off to the side. Ro: You guys, Lilly bakes! Lilly: I used to
bake, it was like my second or third Lilly: video was a Harry Potter, cake that
I baked because I used to make those Lilly: fancy-ish cakes. I wasn’t super good
at it, but I used to do it! Ro: I feel like we should just be having a
holiday party, we should just be Ro: making some cookies. Lilly: Yeah! Ro:
And then I’ll eat ‘em all! Lilly: Mmmhmmm. Lilly: Now that our dry ingredients are over
there, we are gonna cream together Lilly: our butter and sugar. I think you should
be the mixer this time. Ro: Yeah. Lilly: DJ, be a DJ! Ro: Yeah! Lilly:
Should I put this in first? Ro: Yes, yes, yes, go-go-go! Lilly: Ahhhh!
Oh my god, it’s so satisfying! Lilly: I don’t know what it is, it’s so
satisfying! Ro: Sometimes I think it’s like therapeutic.
Lilly: Yeah! Lilly: This is what happiness is made out
of! Ro: Now we are gonna add our eggs, vanilla
and almond extracts! Ro: You’re gonna add one, I’m gonna add
one. Lilly: OK, Same time? Ro: Hit, crack it, just try to twist it. Lilly: One handed? Oh! This is….

Lilly: OK, good, good! Both: 1, 2, 3… Ro: Crack, and a twist! Lilly: This is the greatest accomplishment
of my entire life! Lilly: What do I do with the shell? Ro: Oh

spin it? Lilly: Oh my god I would love to! Ro: OK, here we go, here we go. Lilly: We’re
basically a band. Ro: Yes! We’re a band! Lilly: Did you like Spice Girls growing up?
Ro: I did! Lilly: What, who was your favorite… Which
Spice Girl were you? Lilly: I shouldn’t ask you who your favorite was, because nobody had a favorite one, we were them! Ro: I was all of them! Lilly: Really? Ro:
Sometimes you feel Sporty. Lilly: Mmmhmmm. Ro: Sometimes I feel a little Posh. Lilly: So Spice Girls just represents your
mood swings. Ro: Pretty much! Ro: Now we’re gonna add the almond and vanilla
extract. Lilly: Ewaaahhhh! Lilly: Alright, so our butter mixture is done,
it’s beautiful, now we’re gonna Lilly: add our dry mixture slowly, while Ro
mixes it. Lilly: Ahhhh! Ro: OK, slow! Both: Slow, slower, slower! Ro: Like it’s lightly snowing outside. Ro: How bout make it blizzard? Lilly: Really?

it, can you handle it? Ro: I’m ready, I’m ready! Lilly: Here we go! Bap-bap-bap-bap! Both: Make it rain! Make it rain! Lilly: Make
it rain! Lilly: Alright, now that we got our dough,
we’re gonna cut it in 1/2. Ro: Mmmhmmm. Lilly: Individually wrap it in saran wrap,
and put it in the fridge for an hour. Lilly: Alright, so we took 1 of our disks
out of the fridge, 1 of them is still Lilly: in there. Ro: Mmmhmmm. Lilly: Ro, what
do we do? Ro: We are gonna roll out our dough, now that
it’s chilled. Lilly: Mmmhmmm. Ro: And the first thing we have to do is unwrap
it. And this is where we get Ro: to do a little baking flair! Lilly: OK…. Ro: You know how bartenders do flair? Lilly:
OK, yes, yes, yes! Ro: And they’re like juggling stuff, and
pouring stuff blindfolded? Lilly: Mmmhmm, mmmhmmm, mmmmhmmm! Ro: I was like, we need that for baking! Lilly: Yeah! Ro: You hold it here Lilly, and then you just
flip it up! Lilly: But will it not go flying? Ro: Yeah! Ro: You pull it up and it will go flip-flip-flip-flip-flip,
boom! Lilly: Really? Lilly: 1, 2, 3…. Ro: Eh! Ro: OK, now I’m going to lightly sprinkle
the surface with a little bit of flour. Ro: So that it doesn’t stick. Ro: Then you’re just gonna work it out,
there you go! Lilly: Work! Both: Work-work-work-work-work! Lilly: Something-something work-work-work-work-work! Lilly: What am I doing? I’m breaking it! Ro: No looks fine… Lilly: I’m sure you have to do that to people
all the time, ‘Oh no, don’t worry about Lilly: it, it’s supposed to look horrible,
I promise!’ Ro: We rolled this out, it’s about 1/4 of
an inch thick. Lilly: And now we’re gonna use our cookie
cutters and cut it out! Ro: Mmmmhmmm! Ro: Press it down, give it a little juggle
if you want. Lilly: OK, jiggle, shimmy-shimmy! Ro: Ba-doop! Lilly: Oh my god, they’re so cute! Ro: And now you’re gonna pick ‘em up,
flip ‘em over, and put them onto a baking Ro: sheet, I got a baking sheet here, lined
with a piece of parchment paper. Lilly: They’re so pretty! Ro: I love ‘em! Lilly: I LOVE THEM! Ro: I LOVE ‘EM! Lilly: Now we’re gonna pop these in the
freezer for 15 minutes. Ro: Mmmhmmm. Lilly: Because we don’t want the shape to
change while they’re baking. Ro: And then we’re also gonna heat our oven
to 350 degrees, and bake these Ro: for about 12-13 minutes. Lilly: We know stuff! Ro: We know how to make
some cookies! Lilly: We know stuff! Lilly: Alright, so our cookies are out of
the oven, they’ve cooled, and now what do we do? Ro: Now we are going to decorate! Lilly: Huuuhhhh!
Ro: This is my favorite part you guys! Ro: Frosting Unicorn! Ro: So the first thing that we’re gonna
do is, draw an outline all the way around Ro: our cookie. Now we are going to flood
them, this is the fun part! Lilly: That was a technical term! Lilly: I love it, the best kind of flood! Lilly: I don’t remember the last time I
concentrated this hard on anything! Lilly: And I just did a word tour… Ro: And it doesn’t need to look perfect
because you’re gonna take Ro: a toothpick and smooth it out! Lilly: Alright, so we finished flooding our
cookies and we allowed them to crust Lilly: over and now… Ro: Now we are gonna
add some more details! Ro: Over here in a little plastic baggie we
have some more royal icing, but I Ro: dyed it purple, and this time we’ve
got a number 2 tip at the end for a little Ro: bit more control. We’re gonna pipe the
outline details, in purple, first! Ro: Oh this is doing good! We’re doing good! Lilly: I don’t know, depends what your definition
of good is! Ro: It’s that! That’s adorable! Yes! Lilly: My Unicorn is a little chubby, but
I still love him for who he is! Lilly: Unicorns come in all shapes and sizes!
Ro: Yeah they do! Lilly: Some of them are Rhinos, and that is
OK! Lilly: OK, so my Unicorn is like having a bad hair
day, it takes after me! Ro: Mine too! Lilly: Alright, now we’ve got a lighter color of
royal icing and we’re gonna fill in Lilly: our Unicorn’s mane! Ro: The hair!
Lilly: Leggo! Ro: I thought about dying my hair this color.
Lilly: This color? This purple? Ro: Mmmmhmmm. Lilly: That would look really
cool actually! Ro: I just like hair stuff I think. Lilly:
You know, I’ve never dyed my hair in my life. Ro: Have you always had long hair? Lilly:
Always, yeah! Ro: Well I guess I bleached it blonde for
a charity thing. Lilly: Oh girl! Ro: Because I have dark hair, the roots grow
back so quick, and it… Lilly: Yeah, a lot of maintenance. Lilly: My hair’s always a disaster, like
it will… Ro: And then I tried bangs for awhile… Ro: And I cut ‘em so short, Lilly I had
to wear a headband! Lilly: One time I tried combing my hair in
the shower. Ro: Oh no! Lilly: I had to cut the comb out of my hair
because… Ro: Put my hair in deep conditioner, and put
it up in a shower cap and I walk around Ro: my house like that for a few hours. Lilly: All the guys who don’t care about
this watching this are Lilly: like, ‘SHOW THE COOKIES! WE WANT
THE COOKIES!’ Lilly: Alright, so now we’re done filling
in the manes and we’re gonna use this Lilly: beautiful light pink to make the ears.
Ro: And, I’ve got black and white Ro: royal icing for the eyeballs and nose!
Lilly: Mmmhmm! Lilly: We’re giving the Unicorn senses! Ro: I love it! Lilly: Oh my gosh, this is
the closest I’m getting to childbirth right here. Ro: She can smell now, she can see now, she’s
growing up so fast! Lilly: I know! Lilly: Alright, so we’re almost done, but
first we gotta do the magical Lilly: Unicorn Horn! Ro: Yep, we saved the
best for last, you guys! Lilly: Mmmhmm! Lilly: Mmmhmm, mmmhmmm! Ro: We’ve got a
bunch of colors here, because it’s gonna Ro: be a rainbow horn. We have Pink, purple,
blue, green, a lighter green, Ro: and yellow, and we tried to make it look
like the emoji that you see, the Ro: Unicorn emoji! Lilly: It’s so pretty! Ro: How are you so fast Lilly? Lilly: I, I,
you know what, I don’t know… Lilly: I’m very focused on a task when I
do it. And that can be a bad thing because Lilly: sometimes when I’m texting people,
about something specific, if they Lilly: don’t respond, specifically what
I’m asking about, I will totally ignore them. Ro: You’re not messing around, you don’t
got time for people talking nonsense! Lilly: You tell ‘em Ro! Ro: Yeah. Lilly:
You should do my voicemail. Ro: Leave the messages short and to the point,
because she’s busy and she’s a boss Ro: lady and she’s got stuff to do and things
to create, don’t be leaving no nonsense! Lilly: You hear that Mom and Dad? Ro: Beep! Both: Ta-daaaaaaaaaaaa! Lilly: These are our Unicorn Emoji Cookies,
I love them! Ro: I love them too, they’re so cute! Ro: You guys they look just like the emoji.
