Snowman Shortbread Cookie


Hello beautiful people!

Today we are making some Snowman Shortbread Cookies from our Disney Eats Holiday Treat Challenge.

When I was first trying to figure how to make these I thought it was going to have to figure out a copycat recipe. I didn’t think there was any chance I would find the official recipe since the cookies just came out. Usually, we have to wait months before Disney releases it. Not this time! The other day I was searching through Instagram and there it was! I couldn’t believe it. Between the doggie pictures and travel destinations way out of my price range, Instagram user @adventurestodisney had been given the recipe from the parks. I was stoked and thanked her.

Here’s the official Disney Park Recipe:

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purposeĀ flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 pound white chocolate bark
  • Red and Green Sprinkles (I used multi-coloredĀ ones because every store was sold out of Red and Green bottles. It’s the holiday’s people, stock up on more please. )

  1. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix together well.
  4. In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar. Cream until light and fluffy.
  5. Into the butter mixture, add the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Mix together well.
  6. Combine the two bowls, and mix until combined.snowmanshortbreadcookieflat
  7. Divide the dough into two balls. Wrap one in plastic wrap until ready to use.
  8. On a clean and lightly floured surface, roll out one ball of dough to 1/8 inch thick. Use a snowman cookie cutter to cut out snowman shapes. Place on the baking sheet
  9. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Let cool completely. Disney doesn’t recommend this on the official recipe but pokes some holes in the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. Every shortbread recipe I have seen recommends this except this one. I would take the extra second and just do it.
  10. In a small bowl. melt the white chocolate bark. Dip the cooled cookie or pipe the icing on the cookie.
  11. Let set and enjoy.

These are so simple. I was really surprised these were shortbread and not sugar cookies. Usually, when you see a cookie like this, it’s safe to believe they are sugar cookies.

I gave these to someone to use in her kid’s bake sale. She told me everyone loved. I know I did when I ate 3 or 4.

Tomorrow we are creating the Holiday Minnie Mouse Cake Pops. Hint: They are very similar to the Mickey ones we made two days ago.

Happy baking everyone!
