A Mickey Mouse Christmas with Bakell!

Christmas is around the corner and we can’t wait to share several new holiday recipes, including this amazing sugar cookie recipe! We used our Metal Mouse Cookie Cutter and a few of our favorite shades of Tinker Dust to create these Christmas themed Mickey Mouse cookies. We have so many fun shapes to work with this Holiday season, some of our favorites are our Christmas Tree Cookie Cutters and our Snowman Cookie Cutters

This sugar cookie recipe is fool proof! There’s no chilling before rolling and it doesn’t stick easily to the counter or rolling pin. A bit of cornstarch in the dough  helps keep those nice, crisp edges in the oven.  

    INGREDIENTS

    • 2 cups Sweet Cream Salted Butter (softened)
    • 2 cups Sugar
    • 2 Eggs
    • 2 tbsp. Vanilla
    • 4 tsp. Baking Powder
    • 6 cups Flour
    • Pinch of cornstarch 
    • Tinker Dust 

    INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Add butter and sugar to your mixer.  Cream the butter and sugar until it is completely mixed. Do not over-mix.
    2. Add vanilla and eggs and mix until completely incorporated.
    3. Add Baking Powder, a pinch of cornstarch, and mix.
    4. Mix in the flour two cups at a time.
    5. Do not chill the dough, the cookies will bake better if the dough is at room temperature.
    6. Roll a handful of the dough out on a prepared surface until it's about 3/8" thick and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter
    7. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes depending on the size of the cookie. Do not over-bake.
    8. Frost with Buttercream Frosting 
    9. Garnish with any color of Tinker Dust for the perfect finishing touches
    For our final touches we use Tinker Dust to coat on top of our firmed coat of buttercream icing. Tinker Dust Edible Glitter is a beautiful shimmery food grade glitter made with larger particles than Luster Dust to give it an awesome “glitter” look! Our Tinker Dust is tasteless and provides that beautiful extra shine without altering your product flavor! With 100% EDIBLE INGREDIENTS for consumption this product is amazing on cupcakes, cakes, cookies, gourmet foods and other confectionery products!
