are awesome, but what are the holidays without a few cookies?
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!
