How to Make Mickey Mouse Cookies 

  • Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  
Combining the dry ingredients in a bowl

Step 2 – In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Then set aside.

Combining the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract in a bowl

Step 3 – In a separate bowl, beat together the butter with the sugar until creamy and light and fluffy.  Add in the eggs one at a time until combined.  Then add in the vanilla extract.  Continue mixing.

Combining the dry and wet ingredients in a bowl with a spatula

Step 4 – Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined.  Be careful not to over mix.

Dividing the dough into two dough balls

Step 5 – Divide the cookie dough into 2-3 balls.

Rolling the dough out with a rolling pin and a Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter on the side

Step 6 – Roll out each of the dough balls onto a lightly floured surface until the dough is approximately ¼ inch thick with rolling pin.  Then use a Mickey cookie cutter to cut out the cookies.  Continue this process until all the dough is formed into the cookies.

Step 7 – Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a metal spatula move the cut cookies to the parchment lined cookie sheet.

  • Step 8 – Bake for 7-8 minutes until the cookies are lightly browned around the edges (just a slight change of color).
  • Step 9 – Let the cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes and then carefully move the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely. (About 10 minutes).

How to Decorate Mickey Mouse Cookies

Mixing the icing in a bowl with a hand mixer

Step 1 – Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl mixing on medium speed for 4 minutes. (except your food coloring). If icing is not stiff enough add ¼ cup powder sugar until the icing is to a 15 second consistency.  Which means that when you slice a spatula across the top of the icing, it would take 15 seconds to disappear.

Step 2 – Separate the icing into 3 small bowls.  Mix one bowl of the icing with the red, a different bowl with the black gel food coloring and leave the last bowl white.

Step 4 – Let this icing cool completely (2-3 hours).  Then place the white icing in a decorated bag fitted with a small round tip and use it to pipe 2 white buttons of the red portion of each cookie. 

  • Step 5 – Allow the icing to cool completely (2-3 hours).  Do not cover the cookies while the icing is cooling.
  • Step 6 – After the icing has cooled completely, store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5-7 days.

Expert Tips

  • Baking Cookies – Bake cookies until golden brown on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. This allows the cookies to easily remove from the baking sheet to cool. It also makes cleanup a breeze.
  • Icing Cookies – After adding the icing to the cookies allow it to cool before storing. This allows for the cookies to ensure the frosting to set and not mess up.
