4th of July Mickey Cookies Recipe

Mickey Cookies Recipe

It’s getting close to my favourite month – July. So much beauty in the summer months, living outdoors and picnicking with family. In Canada, we have Canada Day and I have anniversaries and birthdays here too. Much to celebrate and much to bake for too. If you are one of my United States readers then you also have a great deal to celebrate – like July 4th! There are a few iconic things, destinations, people, characters and events I think of when I think of the United States. Mickey Mouse and Disneyland are a couple of those things that are genuinely American. I think this Mickey Cookies Recipe is just right for this time of year.
