Mickey Mouse cookies

Since my Strawberry jam tarts got such a good reception I am going to do another recipe. This recipe is for Mickey Mouse cookies! It is quite difficult when it comes to icing them so beware; this recipe is only for the patient! They look so good when they are finished and the hard work really pays off. They would be great at a child’s party or event. I only iced four because they take quite a while but this recipe makes 8-10 cookies. I would recommend you make them quite thick. You will need to find a Mickey Mouse cutter and embosser too!
Ingredients:
For the dough
– 400g plain flour
– 200g unsalted butter
– 200g caster sugar
– 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
– 1 egg
For the icing
– red food colouring
– black food colouring
– 500g icing sugar
– cold water
Method:
1. Place flour, butter, vanilla extract, egg and sugar into a food processor and blend until the mixture comes together to form a dough. Leave dough to cool in a fridge for 10 minutes.
2. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it out with a rolling pin. Roll the dough out so that it has an even thickness.
3. Cut out as many of the cookies as you can with your cutter and place an embosser with the features of mickeys face on your dough, press down and then release. Place them on a lined baking tray.
4. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and bake your cookies for 8-12 minutes.
5. Allow cookies to cool completely on the baking tray.
6. Make your icing and add the food colouring, you will need to put the white, red and black icing into 3 small piping bags and ice them how I have iced them on my picture. If you do not have an embosser with the features of Mickeys face on it then you will need to draw his features free hand. Use the picture to help you.
7. Once you have finished icing them allow cookies to dry thoroughly and enjoy!! They are great if you serve them with milk!!
