Vee’s baking tips
- Make sure your butter is softened before creaming it with the sugar – this will help create that perfect soft and chewy texture.
- Use a Mickey-shaped cookie cutter to make these cookies even more magical and fun!
- To make sure your DoubleTree chocolate chip cookies maintain their Mickey shape while baking, just pop the pan into the fridge for a few minutes after you’ve laid out the Mickey-shaped cookie dough. Easy peasy!
- Don’t overbake these cookies! They are meant to be soft and chewy, so make sure you take them out of the oven as soon as they start browning on the edges.
- Let them cool for a few minutes before enjoying – this will allow the cookies to set and become even more delicious!
- The chocolate chip cookie dough can be wrapped in plastic and stored in the fridge or freezer for up to a week.
- If you choose to store the dough in the freezer, there’s no need to defrost it when you’re ready to bake! Just thaw it enough to roll it out and cut it into the Mickey shape!
- It’s best to enjoy your cookies within 3 days after making them for the freshest taste.
How to make Mickey DoubleTree Cookies
Enjoying a DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie is one thing, but making them at home and adding a little Disney magic is another! All you’ll need are a few ingredients, and you’ll be popping out delicious chocolate chip cookies in no time.
First, preheat your oven to 325°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Step 1: Cream butter and eggs
Grab a large bowl and combine the softened unsalted butter, white sugar, light brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix until everything is smooth and fluffy!
Step 2: Add dry ingredients
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, kosher salt, and cinnamon. Next, add this mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until everything is well combined.
Step 3: Add chocolate chips and chopped walnuts
Now comes the best part – adding in the delicious chocolate chips and chopped walnuts! Gently fold these into the cookie dough until they are evenly distributed in the cookie dough.
Step 4: Roll out cookie dough and cut into Mickey shapes
Using a floured surface, roll out the cookie dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a Mickey-shaped cookie cutter to cut out your cookies and place them onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.
Step 5: Bake and enjoy!
All that’s left is to pop those cookies into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, checking often until they’re a light golden brown color. Let them cool for a few minutes before removing them from the pan and indulging in a cup of mint hot chocolate.
