You guys know I love pie. I really love most kinds of pie to be honest. It could be key lime, berry, free pie… free pie is always good pie.
Yet, there is nothing like a good slice of Apple Pie, and that’s what we are making today. Good old Apple Pie. It just brings images of grandmas baking on a Sunday afternoon. Well it does if you are from the United States. Otherwise it’s the pie you buy at the grocery store and you have seen in movies.
I am so excited to talk to you about something today. You guys know I love Disney books. I especially love Disney books that have recipes in them and I have a great one for you today!
One day I was in a major book retailer looking for new Disney recipes books. I don’t usually find any new ones but sometimes I get lucky. Into the search computer kiosk, I typed in “Disney Food” and BAM a new book appeared. I was pretty excited. It was called “Eat Like Walt – The Wonderful World of Disney Food” by Marcy Carriker Smothers. The computer said it wasn’t going to be available for a few months, so I waited. I told my whole family about how excited I was. Over a year later, it appeared on my doorstep.
Okay, I have a confession to make – I’ve never actually tried s’mores! I’m not from America, I’ve never travelled there for an extensive period of time, and it’s not something I’ve been able to get a hold of anywhere else in the world!
I have, however, always had a longing inside me to try these delicious, melty, dessert-y treats (story time – a doll I had when I was about five years old or so actually came with a campfire kit which had – wait for it – TEENY TINY PLASTIC S’MORES!!! I was so excited by the tiny cute toy that my parents had to actually sit down a google what it was because they’d never heard of anything like it!)
Hey you lovely DisBakers,
Today’s is decorating day everyone!
First if you haven’t seen the last two posts in our series you should check them out first.

I know everyone wants me to jump right into the cookie designs but we still need to get one more fundamental down before we do: outlining and flooding.
Whenever we post cookie photos on our social media, without fail someone will comment they can’t flood a cookie with royal icing. I am nowhere near an expert on this. I’m more of a talented novice I would say. Have you seen some of those cookie artists on social media? Every time I think I made a good looking cookie, I see one of them and think I have a lot to learn. Those men and women are super impressive. Like honestly, how do they do it?
I might not be able to teach you how to make a magic eye puzzle, remember those?, on a cookie, but I can teach you how to flood one.
It’s the start of our Mickey Valentine’s cookie series. Way too often we see recipes with a hundred ingredients, and that take hours to make. Boo on that.
I thought it would be fun to create a series of different cookies using one cookie and two colors. Simple. Things don’t have to be complicated to be delicious. It’s a nice idea to make 8 different kinds of cookies with 16 different colors but people are busy and don’t have time for that. “I know you are 3 little Cindy, and can’t feed yourself, but momma has to shape cupids out of gumdrops and cherries for your class party tomorrow.” One cookie and two frostings sound pretty great. Especially if it’s a Disney Cookie.
When you run a blog you can see the top pages readers click on. It’s useful to see what type of recipes you guys are interested in. Most will make sense. Around Christmas a lot of cookie recipes, in the fall pumpkin pies, but one recipe is busy all year ’round; Bran muffins. Yup, good old bran muffins.
Okay, so we all know that Ralph and Vanellope have the cutest friendship EVER – and this cookie-turned-cake Disney recipe is the proof of that!
It’s not only incredibly adorable – it’s also DELICIOUS!!! (Seriously, this might be the best cake I’ve ever made!)
Hello beautiful Disney people!
I am one of those people who would celebrate Christmas all year round. Seriously I would tinsel the city up if they would let me do it. I would do it anyways, but that would be considered littering. Apparently they frown upon on that. Even shinny glittery littering.
Today we are going to make some Holiday Green Churros from Disneyland. If you have been to the parks recently you know Disney loves themselves a churro. Want a peppermint churro? They got it. Red, green, purple… they have it. I’m sure there is a pink lemonade fruity cereal churro in the parks right now. You get the picture, they love churros. Probably because they are cheap to make and they have an iconic status in the parks. I know some people who think Disneyland is the only place in the world to get one.
