Santa & Mrs. Claus - Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse Cookie

Christmas cookies are a family tradition at my house. We generally stick with the traditional star, tree, snowman and snowflake shapes. But if you want to show your love of Disney as well as your Christmas spirit use your Mickey Mouse cookie cutters to make a delightful holiday treat.
