‘Tis the season to be baking! This is my favorite time to be in the kitchen, baking up delicious treats for my family and friends. Baking around the holidays is definitely a tradition in our household — and we’ll be adding these cookies into our yearly lineup.
Spread holiday cheer to your loved ones with these festive hidden Mickey snowflake treats. These linzer cookies are like little jewels! They’re made of delicate shortbread cookies with a Mickey cutout, sandwiched between raspberry preserve. Then the tops are dusted with powdered sugar, or what I like to call “snow.”
Is your mouth watering yet?
Your family, friends, and especially Santa will be impressed when you make these cookies!

Mickey Snowflake Linzer Cookies
- 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/2 Cup sugar
- 1 Tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 Cup flour
- 1/4 Tsp salt
- Raspberry preserve
- Powdered sugar, for dusting
- Snowflake cookie cutter
- Mini Mickey cookie cutter (or small and large piping tip)
Preheat over to 350° F.
Using a bowl attached to a stand mixer (with paddle attachment), cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla.
In a medium bowl, whisk flour and salt together.
With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
Dump dough onto a floured work surface and shape into a flat disk. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Roll out dough to 1/4″ thick. Then use snowflake cookie cutter to cut out cookies. With half of the cookies, cut out the middle of each with a mini Mickey cutter. (You could also use a large piping tip for the head and a small piping tip for the ears.) Place cookies onto a lined baking sheet. Chill for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
Spread raspberry preserve on the flat side of each solid cookie. Dust the tops of the Mickey cutout cookies with powdered sugar. Then place the Mickey cutout cookies on the cookies with preserve.
