A Disney Cookie Idea
The Disneyland Paris pastry chefs created a BIG chocolate chip cookie that is sweet and soft and totally delicious! While their fancy cookie is topped with pecans, dried fruit, and a dark chocolate drizzle, our version is a little more kid-friendly… and colorful too!
We skipped the nuts and fruit and swapped them for red and white sprinkles – aren’t they so fun? As an added BONUS, this recipe is super easy to make! For all you Disney fans, here’s how make them.
(Recipe adapted from the Disney Parks Blog.)
To make this BIG chocolate chip cookies, you will need –
- ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
- BUTTER – at room temperature
- SUGAR – This recipe uses both brown sugar and granulated
- BAKING POWDER
- CHOCOLATE CHIPS – I always prefer semi-sweet in my chocolate chip cookies
- TOPPINGS – melting chocolate, sprinkles, chopped pecans, dried cranberries, optional
MIX – Add all the cookie ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer, and mix until combined.
ROLL – Roll 8 balls of dough that each measure 1/3 cup to be used for Mickey’s head. Next, roll 16 balls of dough that measure 1 1/2 tablespoons that will be turned into Mickey’s ears.
POSITION – You’ll want to place 4 heads on each baking sheet. Place two ears at the top of each head to form Mickey’s head and ears.
FLATTEN – You’ll want to slightly flatten each ball of dough with your hands as shown above. The Mickey ears should be about 1/4 inch (1/2 centimeter) from the head.
BAKE – Bake only one sheet at a time for about 17 minutes or until the edges of the Mickey cookies begin to brown.
DECORATE – Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave. Next, drizzle melted chocolate over the surface of the cookies. Finally, sprinkle them with sprinkles, candies, dried fruit, and nuts. Then allow the chocolate to set before eating.
Aren’t those so fun?
