Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees

2.  Warm you eggs to room temperature by putting them in a warm water bath for 5 minutes. Separate the egg whites and put the egg whites into a medium sized mixing bowl.

3.  Beat the egg whites for 30 seconds. Add a pinch of salt, a teaspoon vanilla, a teaspoon of cream of tarter, and 1 tablespoon of sugar.

4. Continue to beat the egg whites while adding 5 more tablespoons of sugar one at a time.  Add in the food coloring. Beat the eggs until stiff peaks form.

5.Gently fold in the remaining 4 tablespoons of sugar until incorporated.

6. Pour your mixture into the pastry bag and pipe out 1-inch round mounds for the Mickey head, and two ½-inch round mounds for Mickey ears onto the parchment lined baking sheets. Bang the baking sheets onto the counter to release any air bubbles.

7.  Bake your cookies for 2 hours. After the two hours is up, turn the oven off and prop the door of your oven open ½ an inch using the handle of a wooden spoon.  Allow the cookies to cool inside the oven.

8. Chop 1 cup of chocolate. Use a double boiler to melt 2/3-cup of the chopped chocolate.

9. Once the chocolate is smooth and melted, remove it from the boiler and add the remaining 1/3-cup chopped chocolate, stir until it is melted. This is called tempering the chocolate.

10. Dip your cookies then set them on parchment paper to dry. After an hour, you can move them to the fridge to fully set.

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with these delicious and lovely Mickey cookies.

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.
