The Everyday Mouse
Sweet and tangy, these lemon shortbread cookies are almost too cute to eat! They're light and a fun treat for Disney lovers.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Add butter to the bowl of your mixer and whip until smooth on medium speed.
Add the powdered sugar and lemon juice to the bowl and continue to mix on low until thoroughly mixed. Scrap down the side of the bowl as it mixes.
Add the flour and mix until well blended.
Knead the mixture with clean hands to form the dough. Pat the dough onto the wax paper.
Roll out the dough with the rolling pin until it's about 1/4" thick.
Place the Mickey Mouse cookie cutter on the dough, push down, and give it a small wiggle.
Repeat until all the dough is used.
Carefully pick up the Mickey head shapes and place them in the parchment-lined cookie sheets.
Take the excess dough and roll it together and repeat steps 6-9.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until the cookies are a slight golden color. Don't leave them in long enough to turn brown.
Remove the cookie sheets from the oven and let the cookies cool completely.
While the cookies cool, make the lemon icing.
Use a spoon to spread the icing in a circular motion. This helps make three circles out of icing.on the Mickey head cookies.
