Summer is right around the corner and the warm weather is starting to creep in. Even with classic summer festivities looking a little bit different this year, we can learn to celebrate in new and exciting ways!
Something that is encouraging thousands of people who are staying indoors to think positively, is to bring little sprinkles of Disney magic into their daily life! Whether that’s through using this time to redecorate the house with character themed art, or rocking your own unique work from home Disney style, there are plenty of ways to keep the magic alive from home. I personally have enjoyed looking for a different Mickey cookie recipe to try each week!
Mickey Ice Cream Cone Cookie Recipe
A great way to combine summertime magic with a little Disney at home, is to find fun-in-the-sun themed recipes to get the whole family excited about the changing of the seasons!
These Mickey Ice Cream Cone Cookies are the perfect theme for getting people of all ages excited about the warmer months ahead! Disney shared this recipe with us all, because they know better than anyone that Mickey shaped food just tastes better! Who else agrees with that? I know I do.
Here’s What You’ll Need For This Mickey Cookie Recipe:
- Your favorite sugar cookie dough
- Royal icing, dyed tan
- Royal icing, dyed in rainbow colors
- Piping bags
- Icing scribe (or toothpick)
- Mickey cookie cutter
- Rolling pin
- Paper cut-out of a triangle
- Food coloring pen (optional)
To Make Them, Follow These Easy Steps:
- Start by preheating the oven to 350˚F.
- Roll out the cookie dough to about ¼- to ½-inch thick.
- Next, place the paper triangle (which should be cut to mimic the shape of an ice cream cone) on the dough. Place the Mickey cookie cutter on top (this is going to be ice cream outline). Use the knife to carefully cut along the sides of the Mickey cookie cutter and triangle. Remove the cut-out and place it on lined cookie sheet. Repeat until all dough is used.
- Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes and let them fully cool once taken out of the oven.
- Fill up your piping bags with royal icing and snip a small hole in each of the bags. This will be used for decorating the cookies!
- Use the tan royal icing to pipe a triangle with a curved top on the bottom point of the cookie. If needed, use a food coloring pen to draw a curve to separate the Mickey from the cone to guide your piping. Begin by piping an outline and then fill in the center. Use an icing scribe or toothpick to swirl the icing until it’s smooth. Let icing set for 5-10 minutes. Once set, pipe a diagonal crisscross pattern on top of the cone.
- Use the other icing colors to pipe along the Mickey ice cream silhouette, to fill it in. Use a toothpick to swirl the icing until it’s smooth, then sprinkle the sprinkles on the top of the ice cream scoop.
- You’re going to want to let the iced cookies sit for 8-12 hours in order to fully set and not risk messing up the design.
