Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Cookies Recipe

A Little Disney Magic at Home

I love how simple these Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Cookies recipe are to make.  My friend made them and I was blown away at how easy they are!  If you follow along regularly then you know what a HUGE Disney nerd I am….I’m in love with all things Mickey Mouse and Disney….I mean, it is the most magical place on Earth!

Anyway, a couple of years ago Hubs, Little Man, and I did the full on Disney vacation (this was before Miss Jellybean was even a glimmer in our eyes).  We went in late September (check out this article on When the Best Time to Visit Disney World Is) and had the most magical time.  I must admit I was completely fascinated with the pumpkins….I wanted pictures of all of them….if I could have brought the Mickey shaped pumpkins back on the plane home I would have!

Anyway, as you can see, my favorite picture from this trip is us in front of the castle with the pumpkins on either side….I just LOVE this picture!!

But, you’re here for the awesome cookies….not to hear about my love of Mickey Mouse! 🙂  Seriously though, if you’ve never visited during Halloween…you’ve got to go!  You can read all about our visit to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party…it was the perfect Halloween experience for Little Man!

MICKEY MOUSE PUMPKIN COOKIES RECIPE

Bye for now! Where I Shop- (1)
Thrive Market - It's like the Costco of organics...this is where I get all of my sugar, flour, baking supplies, kids snacks, etc.
Zaycon Foods- This is where I buy most of my meat products in bulk.  The quality is amazing and the prices just can't be beat!  I mean, $1.89 a pound for boneless all-natural chicken breasts!!  It is bulk but you can always split with a friend or make up a bunch of freezer meals like I do!
