✨ Baking tips

  • This is my favorite Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to use when I make this recipe.
  • To make cutting the Mickey pumpkin cut out cookies a bit easier, chill the dough in your fridge for at least an hour before you roll. This will reduce the stickiness of the dough and make it easier to manage.
  • Dip the Micke Mouse cookie cutter into flour each time before pressing it into the dough. This will help minimize any sticking and give you the perfect Mickey pumpkin cookies shape.
  • Be sure that your pumpkin shaped cookies are completely cool before icing.
  • Patience is key! For the best results, let your completed cookies sit out overnight so that the icing has time to dry and set.
  • For more Mickey-shaped goodies, consider making these along with Mickey Pumpkin Spice Waffles!

✨  How to decorate the Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

Decorating these Mickey pumpkin sugar cookies will require some focus, but you’ve totally got this!

First, follow all of the instructions to make the royal icing. Then, once your cookies are cooled it’s time to get busy decorating!

If you want your design to come out best, you’ll first need to use a black edible marker to draw out the lines of the pumpkin on the cookies. Take your time here because you’ll use these as a guide and trace these with your orange icing.

After you’ve got all the lines traced with the frosting, use a squeeze bottle to fill in all the pumpkin design. And, you’re done!

✨ FAQs

Here are the most common questions I get any time I share this Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Cookie recipe. If you have any more questions, drop them for me in the comments below or DM me on Instagram!

Can I make these cookies dairy-free?

Yes! Just use vegan butter in place of the sweet cream butter.

Is there a way to make the pumpkin cut out cookies without tree nuts?

Absolutely! Instead of using the almond extract, just use more vanilla extract. I would recommend an additional 2 tsp of pure vanilla extract to the recipe, though you can add more or less to your liking.

What can I substitute for the eggs?

There are a couple of ways to make the pumpkin shaped cookies egg-free. First, you could use a special egg substitute like Ener-G’s Egg Replacer.

If you don’t have time to order something special, you can replace the egg with baking powder and milk.

Avoid using some of the more common egg substitutes for baked goods like applesauce, as this could cause the dough to be wetter and make it difficult to cut.
