Directions:

1. Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl and mix.

2. Combine wet ingredients in a large bowl and mix. Then slowly add the dry to the wet, stirring constantly.

3. When it becomes too thick to stir, knead with your hands. Then wrap in tin foil and place in the fridge for 2 hours.

4. After 2 hours, preheat the oven to 375° F.

5. Flour a smooth surface, take out the dough, then roll it out. (Pro Tip: Cut out all your house pieces from paper first to make sure they fit together. Then use those pieces as stencils on the dough to cut out your shapes.)

6. Don’t forget to cut out a Mickey-shaped door! Then place all dough on parchment paper on a cookie tray.

7. Bake for 15-18 minutes. (Tip: It’s better that the pieces are over baked than under baked so they don’t break as easily!)

8. Take the pieces out of the oven, then onto a cool, flat surface and let them cool completely.

9. While the pieces are cooling, add the egg whites and vanilla to a large bowl and mix. Then slowly mix in powdered sugar until the icing is pretty stiff — the stiffer the icing, the better it will hold your house together.

10. Place icing in a zip-top bag and into the refrigerator.

11. Take your gingerbread pieces and place them onto a large piece of parchment paper. Take out all your candies!

12. Take the icing out of the fridge and cut a small piece off a corner to use as a piping bag! The first cut you make should be pretty small to use for details before you put the house together.

13. Decorate each piece of gingerbread while it is laying flat before you put them together to form the house.

14. For the front, crisscross the icing to make a pattern on the door, then use a sprinkle for the doorknob, attach it with icing, and decorate all around it (don’t forget to add some hidden Mickeys!). For the roof, create a pattern of Mickeys using peppermints and chocolate candies. 

15. For the sides, create a Mickey by cutting off just the curved tops of two candy canes, then use peppermints as ears! Add extra decorations with icing. 

16. Cut the hole in the icing bag to be a little bigger, then attach all pieces together starting with the front, back and two sides. *Tip* Use glasses or mugs to keep the pieces in place while the icing hardens. Next, add the two roof pieces (use glasses here as well so they don’t slip off!)

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
