In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day this year, I wanted to make Disney St. Patrick’s Day cookies. It seemed only fitting since my husband’s mother is Irish. Mickey Mouse is the one character that truly says Disney so I wanted Mickey and Minnie. Olaf loved summer so much that I thought it would be nice to put him into a Spring holiday like St. Patrick’s Day. The end result was to create cookies representing Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Olaf celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.
I started by looking around for ideas. The Disney Family web site had some paper craft projects for St. Patrick’s Day. I really liked their paper crafts to build a cutie Minnie Mouse and a cutie Mickey Mouse. Under non-holiday crafts, they had a nice paper craft to build an Olaf. When I saw these designs, I knew my cookie design search was over. I thought a Chibi version of Mickey and Minnie would be adorable and I liked the design of Olaf from these Disney paper crafts so I based the Disney characters in my cookies on them.
This Chibi Minnie Mouse St. Partrick’s Day Cookie has Minnie Mouse wearing a green skirt with white and yellow dots and a green blouse. She is wearing a green hat with a darker green band and a green flower with a yellow center. Minnie is wearing green dress shoes with a yellow design. She is standing beside the Leprechauns’ pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The pot has individual pieces of gold made from royal icing.
This Chibi Mickey Mouse St. Partrick’s Day cookie has a green shamrock as a background behind Mickey. Mickey is wearing black shoes, green shorts,a black belt with a gold and green buckle, a darker green vest and a white shirt. He has on a green hat with a darker green band and a gold buckle.
This Olaf St. Partrick’s Day cookie has Olaf wearing a green hat with a darker green band and a yellow buckle. He is standing beside the Leprechauns’ pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The pot of gold has individual pieces of gold made using royal icing.

I highly recommend the Craftsy class Piping Cookies That Pop! by Mallory Mae. It gave me a lot of great information about how to make decorated cookies.
