Delicious Mickey Candy Corn Cookies for the Whole Family

When you think of fall, candy corn is definately something that comes to mind. This classic treat inspired us to make these adorable Mickey-shaped Candy Corn Cookies from Disney Family.

These cookies are simple to make but also fun and festive for the whole family. And who doesn’t love a treat that is Mickey shaped!


  • -Shortbread or sugar cookie dough
  • -Rolling pin
  • -Orange and yellow food coloring
  • -Mickey cookie cutter


Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Divide your dough in thirds. Dye one third of the dough yellow by mixing in yellow food coloring. Dye another third of dough orange by mixing in orange food coloring.

Roll out each third of dough between two sheets of plastic wrap or parchment paper, to about ⅓-inch thick. Cut strips of dough, with each strip wide enough to be at least ⅓ the size of your cookie cutter. For example, my Mickey cookie cutter was about 3½-inches, so each of my strips were about 1¼-inch wide.

Place three strips of dough next to each other, with the plain-colored dough on top, the orange dough in the middle, and the yellow dough on the bottom. Roll slightly to press strips together.

Cut out Mickey shapes with a cookie cutter. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Chilling will keep the dough spread less.

Place cookies on lined cookie sheets. Bake for 10–12 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
