A Mickey Mouse Christmas

Imahn McAlister, Staff Writer


Christmas cookies have been brought up to a whole new level thanks to the genius that is Julia Bradshaw, the owner of Good Juju Gourmet Cookies. Good Juju is a local bakery that seems to be booming. The exciting new cookie flavors just keep people coming back for more.

With Good Juju’s workshops the people get to decorate their own christmas cookies, and her latest workshop revolved around the beloved cartoon character Mickey Mouse. Good Juju bakes out the mickey mouse cookies herself, she used two of her signature cookie recipes:  vanilla brown sugar and snickerdoodle. She then distributes the royal icing that she makes herself.

The workshop was so much fun. Me and my family made six Mickey Mouse cookie designs; we made a gingerbread mouse, a Santa mouse, a Christmas wreath, Christmas lights, and we made two other cookies with pretty designs on them.

The flavors that Good Juju paired with her royal icing were absolutely to die for. The cookies just melted in my mouth as I ate the; I devoured three of them on the way home!

The Good Juju cookies gave me and my family a new traduction. I give the Good Juju’s Gourmet Cookie workshop a five stars.
