How to make Mickey and Minnie Mouse Halloween sugar cookies

First, make the sugar cookies. You can make the Royal icing while the cookies cool.

Sugar Cookie Recipe

What you’ll need

  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups soft unsalted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs

Important! You’ll need Mickey Mouse cookie cutters (you can buy these on Amazon here)

How to make the cookies

  • First, cream the soft butter with the sugar.
  • Add all 4 eggs. Mix.
  • Add vanilla. Mix.
  • Sift the four, baking powder, and salt together.
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture.
  • Continue mixing to make sure all ingredients are thoroughly blended.
  • Make the dough into a ball, wrap it in cling wrap.
  • Put in the refrigerator for about 6 hours or overnight. Check to see if the dough is firm.

Now, you’re ready to bake and cut the cookies into Mickey mouse shapes.

  • First, preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Pull the cookie dough out of the refrigerator and sit it out to soften up a bit.
  • Roll the dough out on the cutting board and using the cookie cutter begin to cut your cookies.
  • Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper (this is optional, if your cookies tend to stick). We use an AirBake Natural cookie sheet, and our cookies don’t stick, so we skip the parchment paper.
  • Using a metal spatula move the cut cookies to the cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 8 minutes.
  • Check to see if the cookies are cooked. They should be a light golden on the bottom.
  • Place cookies on a wire rack to cool completely.
