Mickey Christmas Swirl Cookies

I am on a kick lately with all things Disney. What better way to celebrate the holidays than with a little Mickey magic like these Mickey Christmas Swirl Cookies! They are so adorable…the kids will love them. If these are a little too much work for you then why not try these Christmas Minnie and Mickey Mouse Oreos – pretty darn cute too!

Christmas is such a hectic time of year but taking time to bake cookies (especially with the kids) is time well spent. I spent many years backing sugar cookies with my daughter because she liked to cut them out and decorate them. They weren’t pretty and I’m not sure they tasted that great but we did it every year. It’s all about the memories!

One of my favorite Christmas cookies from when I was growing up is these Chocolate Crinkle Cookies – yum! These Peppermint White Chocolate Rugelach cookies or these Peppermint Frosted Brownies are also good this time of year.

Now, these really are not as hard to make as you think. Take your time, mix the dough, roll and slice. Ha ha…they sound easy right?!

Cut log in half

Roll one of the half logs into a smaller log for the ears

Fold edges of parchment paper and place cookie logs onto a cookie sheet

Repeat steps with the green and other plain dough

When dough is chilled preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Using a sharp knife, cut the cookie dough logs into 2-inch circles

Place a big circle and two small circles onto the cookie sheet in the shape of Mickey’s head. A few drops of water may be needed to help hold the dough together. Gently pinch the ears to the head

Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden brown

Once cookies are baked, pick which ones you want to be Minnie and which ones you want to be Mickey

Using the cookie icing, add a small dollop onto the back of the icing bow and place in the middle of the big circle in between the ears

Repeat steps with all Minnie cookies

Using the cookie icing, pipe on a small dot onto the back of the holly sprinkles and place into the top right corner. Tweezers may help with placing holly sprinkles and bows. 

Repeat steps with all cookies

Let dry for 20 minutes before enjoying!

  1. Oh – what a sweet idea! I hardly watch Mickey Mouse during the year, but around Christmas. And so I will make some fun cookies with the kids to match the cartoons and movies we will watch.
