Mickey Mouse Snowman Sugar Cookies
So you guys know what a total Disney fan I am….and let me tell you, it gets even more so during the holidays! Seriously, I have most of the items from this Disney Christmas Decorations list….I’m still coveting the tree topper.
Even Little Man got me a Mickey Mouse Santa yard figure for my birthday last week because he knew I love all things Mickey. Hubs was pushing for the Darth Vader one but Little Man was smitten with Olaf…so they negotiated to Mickey….but really they were thinking of what I would like best….right?! Well, well go with that story anyway.
Besides, Hubs already has plenty of Star Wars Christmas Decorations (check out this list if you live with a Star Wars fan!) and Little Man has more than enough Olafs (check out these 20 Frozen gifts for under $20)!
Anyway, we’ve been in cookie making mode for a few weeks now….my other vice during the holidays…experimenting in the kitchen with new sweet recipes. If you missed my Ferrero Rocher Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes or my Cranberry Upside Down Cake recipes then you’ll definitely want to go back and check those out, pin them, save them, put them somewhere you won’t lose them because they are AMAZING!!
Back to these Mickey Mouse Snowman Sugar Cookies…Little Man and I had an absolute blast making then! I would draw the outlines in icing and then let him fill them in and decide on accessories.
Now this Mickey Snowman cookie cutter is actually the Halloween Mickey Pumpkin cookie cutter that I used for the Mickey Pumpkin Patch Cookies. Unfortunately you can’t really find it except at Disney World during Halloween….but I found this Mickey 8 cookie cutter that would work just as well- just fill the holes of the 8 with cookie dough.
Even though this is a made from scratch recipe its SUPER easy….and tastes soooooo much better than the premade stuff. I’m also trying to cut out the processed foods full of additives and fillers in our diet. So even though these are sugary sweet goodness I’m trying to do what I can to make them better for my family. In January I’m starting a series called “Baby Steps to Organic Living” where we’ll be making small changes to a healthier lifestyle….I would love it if you follow along with me—just sign up for the weekly newsletter.
