Christmas cupcakes are awesome, but what are the holidays without a few cookies?
Main Street Bakery
In Disney, there are dozens of types of holiday cookies to choose from, but I always head straight to the Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom to find the really creative ones!
And this visit was no different. Every year I find different options, and they’re all as festive and fun and can be. Let’s take a look at the 2012 editions of the Main Street Bakery holiday cookies!
Santa Mickey Sugar Cookies
I am a sugar cookie fiend — especially when they’re iced (you’re not surprised, are you?!) — and these ones absolutely stole my heart when I saw them in the bakery case!
This simple design represents Santa himself — complete with his little belt and belt buckle! Later in the week I saw these cookies made with a much larger belt and belt buckle, so there may be a few different versions out there depending on who’s manning the icing counter at the Bakery!
But it’s not always what’s on top that counts! These soft, chewy butter cookies are always worth getting at the bakery. They’re delicious, and have a rich, sweet taste that’s the essence of Christmas baking for me.
Plus, it doesn’t hurt to have that awesomely thick glaze icing topping… While it’s not as hard as a royal icing, it is set, so the cookies won’t be that messy.
Next up? The classic gingerbread cookie!
I loved how traditional this was, and the icing outline around the cookie is the perfect way to set the stage for an old-fashioned looking Christmas cookie. The sugar holly leaves and berries were a fun touch, too!
He smelled so good that I promptly snapped his little leg off to try it! The gingerbread isn’t a dark, super-spicy version, so if you’ve got picky eaters in your brood, this cookie should still work well. I enjoyed it (but not as much as that awesome sugar/butter cookie above)! ;-D
So if Christmas isn’t complete for you without a cookie or two, definitely head to Main Street Bakery to get your fix! They always have the most unique options there — and it’s well worth a visit!
