As a mom of three toddlers, I am always on the lookout for easy, veggie-packed recipes to feed my girls. My girls love Pizza, but I want them to love vegetables. When I found riced cauliflower at my local Aldi, I knew I needed to find a recipe for cauliflower pizza. Thank you, Pinterest for directing me to this blog – with only three ingredients needed for the crust, I knew it was the perfect recipe to try with my girls.
Who wants a Cookie? I am so excited to collaborate with my new friend Bethany from The Pintastic Girls to share our favorite Cookie Recipes. Be sure to go check out The Pintastic Girls and give their channel some support! You can find them on Youtube,Twitter and Instagram!
My Favorite Cookie Recipe
My favorite Cookie Recipe was actually found by my sister in law, and she first made it with my girls a couple of months ago. (Find the recipe here) It has become our go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies, and if i’m being honest – I have made it about 3x this week. It really is THAT GOOD!.
Again, this recipe was not created by me, it was found on pinterest.
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar (packed)
1 1/4 Cup Flour (Sifted)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 Cup (1-Stick) Melted Butter
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
In order to make these cookies Mickey inspired, I purchased some M&M’s and added little Mickey shapes into each of the cookies. For the Minnie Bow, I cut an M&M in half and attempted a bow look. I think it turned out pretty cute, but you definitely need to use your imagination for the Bow. 😉 For all Disney sweets inspiration, I encourage you to check out this instagram feed. She does some of the cutest little Disney treats.
How to Make the Cookies
First, combine both types of sugar with the softened or melted butter.
Next, you will want to add the egg and vanilla. Mix the dough until well combined.
Finally, sift the flour and baking powder together.
Don’t forget the Chocolate Chips! 😍
After everything is combined, let the dough chill for about 20-30 minutes.
We like to use a tablespoon to scoop out our cookie dough, but you can use whatever you prefer for this step.
To make these cookies Disney inspired, add your M&M’s in the shape of a Mickey Mouse and bake.
Bake the cookies for 11-13 minutes in the oven preheated to 350 degrees.
Pro Tip: These cookies are extremely chewy, you will want to let them cool on the pan for about 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
Frugal Tip: M&M’s can be found pretty inexpensively at your local pharmacy or grocery store, and are an easy way to create Disney Inspired cookies. If you have Mickey-Loving kids like me you will want to give this little tip a try! When we made the cookies in the video we added the candies before baking. This didn’t work out as well as I’d hoped. Simply because the cookies expanded. A better way would have been to let them back halfway and then add the candy for the remainder of the bake time.
