These cookies do require that you make them the day before so these are not a last-minute type of treat. If you are looking for a last-minute type of treat check out my Fall Snack Mix.

Ingredients and Tools

For the Cookies:

  • 1 C of unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 C Powder sugar<span
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 3 C of flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • Cookie Cutter: Mickey head

For the Icing and Decorating:

Mickey Mouse Sugar Cookies Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Using a standing mixer, cream together the butter, powder sugar, vanilla and egg and mix until combined and creamy.

Using a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. I usually use a whisk to combine these together. It adds a little bit of air to keep the mix fluffy.

Gradually add in the dry ingredients and mix on low speed.

Using your hands continue to mix until fully combined. It is always fun to get a little messy while baking. I usually have a cute apron on while baking because it makes me feel more Suzy homemaker!

Lightly flour a cutting board and knead the cookie dough a couple of times.

Roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thick.

Cut out 12 Mickey heads and place onto a cookie sheet. Round up remaining dough and set aside.

Bake for 8 minutes or until lightly golden brown. While the first set is baking you can start cutting out the next.

Let cookies cool completely.

Mickey Mouse Jack O Lantern Royal Icing Instructions

Using the standing mixer, combine the egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla and powder sugar and mix until combined and stiff peaks form

Split icing into 3 bowls, only needing about 3 tablespoons of white icing in the third bowl

Add 1-2 drops of black into one of the three bowls. Add a few drops of Orange into the second bowl and leave the third bowl white. Mix until the colors are blended and the shades you want

Scoop about 1/4 C of icing into their own bags. You should have 3 piping bags, one for Orange, Black, and white.

Add 2-4 tsp of water into the remaining icing bowls and mix until combined. Only the Orange and black are to be thinned. Pour the icings into squeeze bottles.
