Mickey Mouse Cookies

It’s a tie! Does that mean I have to make both? Between the Banana Cream Pie and the Mickey Mouse Cookies, the latter was my favorite, so that’s the one I baked. But don’t worry; chances are big I’ll end up making a luscious Banana Cream Pie in the near future. I always crave bananas around summertime. And until then, you can check out the delicious Banana Cream Pie I made last year. Anyways, on to the Mickey Mouse Cookies: I bought a Mickey cookie-cutter in Disneyworld last summer, and some Mickey Mouse sprinkles in NYC. I would like to say I tried some fabulous new recipe, but I sticked with my go-to Sugar Cookies recipe – “if it ain’t broke …” Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Sugar Cookies recipe: adapted from AllRecipes.com's 'The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies'

Ingredients:
- ¾ cup butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions:
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, and then the vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the flour mixture into the creamy butter/sugar/eggs-mixture. Roll dough into a flat disc. Cover with clingwrap, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll out dough on floured surface ¼ to ½ inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

Sugar Cookie Icing recipe: AllRecipes.com

- Food coloring

Instructions:
In a small bowl, beat together confectionars's sugar, light corn syrup and vanilla. Add a tablespoon of milk one at a time, until icing is smooth and glossy.

“Lie? Well, lie or no lie. Musketeers don't run from danger, and as long as we wear these uniforms.”
- Mickey Mouse, Steamboat Willie


“Isn't it romantic, Daisy? Being protected by three dashing musketeers, and the little one is so handsome.” - Minnie Mouse, Steamboat Willie


“Minnie! You trying to get me killed?” - Mickey Mouse, Runaway Brain


“Just imagine. He'll stride into the room. Light will glow from him. I'll hear music. He'll bring me flowers.” - Minnie Mouse, Steamboat Willie


“Ah... Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Oh! Look Daisy! Mickey and I have the same last name!”
- Minnie Mouse, Steamboat Willie

@maynardbn: Sorry for the late reply :) I just cut the bows with a sharp kitchen knife... no cookie cutter. I "glued" them to the cookie with the icing! Hope this helps :)
