Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Cookies

Nothing beats getting ready for Halloween than gathering your ingredients and preparing some homemade holiday-themed baked goods. Rather than buying pre-made cookies at the store, most of which are dry, hard as a rock, and flavorless, you can make these cute and tasty Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Cookies alone or with the kids by your side to lend a helping hand!

Making cookies from scratch means having quite a few baking ingredients. While you’ll need several essential items, you’ll appreciate the outcome of these cookies from the time and effort spent on them!

  • Flour – Start with the flour to begin preparing the homemade cookie dough.
  • Powdered Sugar – Give your cookies a sweet touch with the addition of powdered sugar.
  • Vanilla Extract – Add notes of vanilla to each bite with vanilla extract.
  • Almond Extract – Enhance the overall taste of these cookies even further by including some almond extract in the mix.
  • Baking Soda – Make sure your cookies have the ideal texture by including baking soda in your cookie dough mixture.
  • Sweet Cream Butter – Grab the unsalted version of this butter and let it sit out to soften.

You’ll also need cream of tartar and a large egg for the cookie dough. In addition to these ingredients, make sure you have what you need to prepare the royal icing, such as egg whites, sugar, food coloring, more cream of tartar, etc.

Supplies Needed To Make Mickey Mouse Halloween Cookies

Try different variations of these cookies to customize them to your liking. These are some other fun ideas:

  • Give your cookies a slight coconut-like taste by replacing the almond extract with coconut extract.
  • If you’re a fan of bananas, you can replace the almond extract with banana extract, too.
  • Lemon extract is another great option for these cookies. It gives them a slightly zesty taste that pairs well with the royal icing.

If you can’t find a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter in the grocery store or a spot like Target and Walmart, you can find it online and order it ahead of time to prepare these cookies.

What can I do if the dough is still sticky before I bake these cookies?

When the dough is still a bit too sticky, try beating ¼ cup of flour into the mixture to make it less sticky.
