Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Teal loop. Today we are sharing easy Disney snack recipes.
Getting a Disney fix doesn’t have to be a challenge! Using some Disney themed cookie cutters, you can make a variety of things to help bring a little of that magic to your every day.
Don’t Just Stick With Cookies
While the most obvious use is to use your cookie cutters for some cutout cookies, you don’t have to be limited to just sugar cookie dough you can roll out. Any cookie dough, brownies or jello you make in a cookie sheet can be cut out with the cookie cutters into your Disney shapes.
Spruce up lunch boxes or lunch at home by using the cookie cutters to shape your sandwiches, grilled cheese or quesadillas with your cookie cutters. Assembling the sandwiches then cutting them with the cookie cutters is usually the easiest way to make your Disney treat but in some cases you’ll need to cut your items prior to assembling if the cookie cutter won’t be able to push through everything.
Breakfast can also be a bit more magical with your cookie cutters too. Spray them with cooking spray and use them as pancake molds (use tongs while cooking as the metal will get hot or cut the shapes out of the pancakes once they’re made). You could also do this with french toast.
Beyond the Food
Take your cookie cutters on an adventure outside the kitchen! You’ll be surprised at the things you can do around the house with them.
Throwing a Disney themed birthday party? Use the cookie cutters as templates, trace them then cut out your shapes to make place cards, happy birthday banners or decorations for the tables or walls. If you’ve got different sized but same shaped cutters you can overlap different sizes and shapes for an even more custom look for your party.
Next time the kids need something to do and you’re feeling the crafting urge, put some paint on paper plates and let the kids dip the cookie cutters in the paint and onto paper. Younger kids can just stamp until they’ve run out of room while older kids can use the shapes as the start to their own drawing or outline to color in (once it’s dried a bit).
Make your Disney themed room more custom and professional looking by using your cookie cutters as stencils to paint a boarder around your room or onto accessories for your room. Dipping them into the paint (similar to the kids painting suggestion above) and leaving just the outline works great but you could also paint the inside. If you’re doubtful about your ability to hand paint, use the cookie cutter as a template on a sponge to make a solid shape you can dip in paint and decorate with.
Don’t stop at your walls – you can prepare for your next trip to Disney with your cookie cutters too. Trace the shapes onto paper to make autograph books or luggage tags. Decorate shirts for your family with the cookie cutters and fabric paint or markers.
Cookie cutters can come in handy during holiday decorating too. Use them as templates for your jack-o-lantern or actually use them to cut shapes into your pumpkin if you’re able to get it through. Making your cinnamon applesauce ornaments in your favorite Disney shapes is a great way to spread a little magic during the holiday season.
There are so many ways you can use a simple Disney cookie cutter so next time you’re in the parks looking for an inexpensive souvenir you’ll get lots of use from, grab a handful of cookie cutters and see what you can come up with!
