Baking Magic – Giant Mickey Cookie (gone wrong!)

It feels like ages since I’ve done a Disney baking post, and as the title suggests, I’m afraid to say this one went a little wrong, but its still delicious so I’m still sharing it!

‘Why did it go wrong?’ I hear you ask. Well, because while I love cookies, they seem to hate me, and I never seem to get them 100% right.

But seriously, this recipe is so good and so easy, and it makes SUCH A BIG COOKIE. Definitely sharing size. Or not.

1. Using a fork, soften 30g butter, then mix in 25g caster sugar and 25g soft brown sugar – light or dark are both fine!

2. Crack an egg into a small bowl and beat it, then add 2 tbsp of the beaten egg to the mix with 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.

3. Mix together 35g plain flour, 2 tbsp cocoa powder and 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda, then add to the cookie mix and beat in with the fork.

4. Add 50g chocolate chips (whatever combination of white/milk/dark you like!) and stir in.

At this point, I carefully scooped my mixture onto a baking tray covered in greaseproof paper in the shape of Mickey Mouse, added a few chocolate chips and it looked pretty cute:

I then baked it at 170C for 14 minutes, and when the oven beeped, this is what came out..

So I put it on a Mickey shaped plate and ate it anyway!

And it was delicious.

  1. You cookie batter is too wet… try and get it to more of a doughy consistency… however this will give you a slightly more crunchy cookie and space out the ‘ears’ and ‘head sections to allow for spreading. I bet it tasted good though!

  2. Same thing happens to me when I try to make Mickey shortbread! I use my Mickey shaped cutter so they look perfect going in but they never stay that way and always go out of shape 😦
