Minnie Mouse

Minnie's Polka-Dot Cookies

Inspired by the character: Minnie Mouse

Ever since their 1928 film debut in Steamboat Willie, Minnie and Mickey have been an inseparable duo. After 80-plus years of courtship, a mouse is apt to know what sort of valentine will prompt his better half to utter those famous words: "Aren't you sweet?" Fashioned after Minnie's favorite dress, these heart-shaped polka-dotted cookies are the perfect fit. They're made with a shiny icing that's easy to spread and pipe (the recipe below makes enough to frost about two dozen 3-inch cookies).

Ingredients

    Heart-shaped cookie cutter
    Batch of chilled sugar cookie dough (homemade or store bought)
    Sifter
    2 cups powdered sugar
    Small mixing bowl
    Wooden spoon
    3 tablespoons milk
    1 tablespoon light corn syrup
    Toothpick
    Small plastic bag
    Red food coloring
    Waxed paper
    Butter knife

Directions
  1. Cut heart shapes from the sugar cookie dough and bake them according to the recipe or package directions. Allow the cookies to thoroughly cool.
  2. Prepare the cookie icing by sifting the powdered sugar into a small mixing bowl and then stirring in the milk. Add the corn syrup and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Use the toothpick to poke a small hole in the corner of the plastic bag. Then spoon a third of the icing into the bag. Set the bag aside for now.
  4. Stir drops of red food coloring into the remaining icing in the bowl until you have the desired shade.
  5. Cover your working surface with a sheet of waxed paper. Working with one cookie at a time, spread the tops with the colored icing and immediately use the icing-filled plastic bag to pipe on white dots. (If you do this while the tinted frosting is still fluid, the dots will spread nicely to the same level.) To keep the dots as round as possible, lift the bag straight up from the cookie after you've piped the icing. You can practice the technique beforehand by piping a few dots onto a piece of waxed paper.
