It’s gearing up to be an incredible summer and my family is super excited about the highly anticipated sequel to Disney•Pixar’s hit film The Incredibles. We can’t wait to learn more about Jack-Jack’s powers. In the meantime, these adorable Jack-Jack Cookies will make anyone smile. How could you resist the cuteness?
Incredibles 2 is now streaming on Disney+!
For more Disney fun, check out this Incredibles-inspired workout:
- 1 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 Tsp baking powder
- 1/4 Tsp salt
- 6 Tbsps (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
- 1/2 Cup granulated sugar, plus 2 additional Tbsps
- 2 Tbsps powdered sugar
- Finely grated zest of 1/2 lemon
- 1 large egg
- 1 Tsp vanilla
- ROYAL ICING:
- 4 1/2 Cups powdered sugar
- 1/3 Cup meringue powder
- 1/2 Cup water
- Pastry bag tips (#2, 4)
- Pastry bags
- Kitchen scissors
- Pink, black, and brown food coloring
- Edible marker
All cutting and baking should be done by an adult.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, granulated and powdered sugar, and lemon zest until pale and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture and mix until combined.
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Roll out dough between 2 pieces of floured parchment paper to 1/2” thick. Then, refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes.
Remove parchment. Cut out Jack-Jack heads using a sharp knife. (You can cut out a template from paper and then use it as a reference to cut the dough.) Re-roll scraps and cut out.
Space cookies 2” apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until pale golden, about 7 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.
Make the royal icing: Beat powdered sugar, meringue powder, and water. Beat on low speed for 10 minutes. Divide icing into 4 bowls and add food coloring for pink, black, and brown colors.
Place icing into pastry bags fitted with a decorating tip. (Use #2 for pink, #4 for brown, #2 for white, #2 for black, and switch to #4 for the mask.)
Using an edible marker, outline Jack-Jack’s face, including the mask, eyes, and mouth.
Decorate with icing, including his hair, mask, eyes, and mouth.
