Growing up, I had a handful of Disney animated classics that I always kept on deck to rewatch over and over. One of my absolute favorites was Disney’s Aladdin!

The movie enchanted me right off the bat with the Arabian night scene and kept me enamored throughout with the upbeat music, lavish decor of the sultan’s palace and the spirit of Princess Jasmine.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° degrees.
  2. Start by whisking together your sugar and applesauce. Then add in your mashed bananas, milk and vanilla — whisking thoroughly until they’re well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together your baking powder and flour.
  4. Next, combine your wet mixture with your flour mixture and mix until you have a good dough consistency.
  5. Sprinkle a cutting board with flour– this will be the surface that you’ll use to roll out your dough.
  6. Place a small ball of the dough down, and sprinkle more flour on top of it.
  7. Roll it out to about 1/8″ thick, then cut the dough into the shape of a mini magic carpet using a small knife.
  8. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper so that the dough doesn’t stick, then place your unbaked magic carpet cookies onto it and bake them for roughly 9- 10 minutes.
  9. To make the frosting to decorate the cookies, start by filling up a pot with a couple inches of water, and bringing it to a boil.
  10. Place a large bowl on top of the pot and place your frosting ingredients (egg white, sugar, and water) inside. Beat the mixture fast until peaks begin to form.
  11. Separate the frosting into different small containers and add in the appropriate food coloring to each so you have different colors to decorate with.
  12. Now you can get creative and decorate your cookies in the most magical way!
