More donut fun! If you want to make something special this holiday season, how about donut cookies shaped like Mickey Mouse? These donut sugar cookies are topped with pink frosting with rainbow sprinkles. They are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face!
Sugar Cookie Dough Ingredients:
1cup unsalted butter sweet cream (softened)
2/3cup granulated sugar
1/3cup brown sugar
2 eggs (room temperature)
3 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp butter flavoring
3cups gluten-free 1:1 flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Pink Frosting Ingredients:
1 1/4cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
2 drops of light pink food coloring
Make Cookie Dough:
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Using a stand mixer, combine butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar on low speed until light and fluffy – this should take around 4 minutes.
Add eggs, butter flavoring, and vanilla extract while mixing, still running at low speed until all is combined.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together gluten-free flour, baking powder, and salt; slowly add the dry mix to the wet mixture while keeping the mixer set to its lowest setting.
Bake Sugar Cookies:
Using a large cookie scoop, create dough balls and arrange them on parchment or silicone mat-covered baking sheets.
Make sure to only place 4-5 per sheet, then press each ball lightly with your fingers until they’re about ½ inch thick.
Put the cookies in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown on top before removing and allowing 15 minutes of cooling time.
Form Cookies Into Mickey Shape:
Utilizing a medium-sized circle cookie cutter, cut out a hole in the middle of each cookie.
Then with a smaller circle cookie cutter, create two holes on either side to make “ears”.
Mix Up Pink Icing:
In a small bowl, combine your ingredients to create an irresistible icing.
Using a whisk, stir until it is thoroughly mixed and has reached its desired thickness.
Decorate Mickey Donut Cookies:
Submerge each Mickey cookie into the sugary icing and place them back on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle topping over all of them for a festive and delicious look.
Now, let everything stay put to solidify for 30 minutes before taking a bite!
