In honor of Mickey Mouse’s birthday today, I’m sharing a recipe he would endorse. If you like peanut butter cookies, you’ll definitely like these.
Mickey is 90 years old today. Wow, can you believe that?
They’re celebrating this weekend at the Magic Kingdom, where guests can take part in the fun with limited-time entertainment, specialty food and beverage options, new merchandise, and more. What fun it would be to be there right now. 😎 (Especially given our current weather!!)
Mickey and Minnie even have new outfits to celebrate.
So, whip up a batch of these cookies today and celebrate like you were right there with them. Wish I could be.
Disneyland's Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 c. butter
- 1 c. creamy peanut butter
- 1 c. granulated sugar
- 1 c. packed brown sugar
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 4 c. all purpose flour
- 2 t. baking soda
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1 c. peanut butter chips
- 1/4 c. granulated sugar (for rolling the cookies)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar.
Add vanilla and mix
Add the egss, one at a time, mixing well after each one.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt together. Add to mixing bowl and stir until completely combined.
Fold in peanut butter chips.
Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls (about walnut size)
Place the 1/4 c. sugar in a shallow bowl and roll each ball of dough in the sugar until completely covered.
Place the rolled dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and gently press each dough ball down to about 1/2 inch thick.
Bake the cookies for 7-9 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes. Move them to a wire rack (or paper towel) to finish cooling.
Note: these cookies are very soft. You don't want to overbake them or let them turn brown. They will continue to set up as they cool.
