For our recent Disney Side @ Home Celebration, I made something really special that my kids were still talking about for weeks afterward: a Mickey Sandwich Cookie!

This Mickey Sandwich Cookie recipe is not unique in the ingredients, but I thought the concept was quite clever…consider it a homemade Mickey Oreo 😉

Making these Mickey Mouse cookies was actually much simpler than I could have imagined.

As part of being a Disney Side @ Home hostess, I received the Wilton Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutters Set. I adapted sugar cookie dough from Wilton and used a store-bought white frosting.

Mickey Sandwich Cookie Recipe

For the cookie dough, first preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Then cream 1 cup softened butter with 1 1/2 cups of sugar (in a stand mixer for about a minute). Then add in 1 egg and 1 1/2 tsp real vanilla extract (our is from Mexico) until combined.

In a separate bowl, sift 2 1/2 cups AP flour with 2 tsp baking powder & 1 tsp salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the stand mixer. DO NOT OVERMIX or the dough will become tough.

Form into ball on floured surface and divide dough in half. Roll out dough to make it about 1/8 inch and then cut out Mickey heads with your Mickey cookie cutter. Bake cookies on a cookie sheet lined with a silicon baking mat for about 6 minutes…do not over-bake! Once out of the oven, allow the cookies to cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.

Once cookies are cooled, put a generous amount of white frosting on the flat side (bottom) of one Mickey head cookie. After frosting one cookie, take the flat side of a second cookie and match it up to the frosting.

Voila! You have your Mickey Sandwich cookie.

It really amazed me that something so simple as putting two cookies together with a schmear of frosting could be such a big hit. It just goes to show that you don’t always have to reinvent a recipe, but just smush it together with itself every once in awhile 😉
