Vampirina and Demi Sugar Cookies Recipe

As the new kid in town, Vampirina is learning how to make new friends with those who are just a bit different than herself. This wonderful Disney Junior cartoon teaches kids that while we may be different, that doesn’t have to keep us apart. We can be friends and respect each others differences.



Vampirina has certainly become a very popular addition to Disney Junior’s line up, with parents and children enjoying the quirky scenarios and life lessons. I enjoyed the cartoon enough to make an epic Printable Party Pack featuring Vampirina and her family. Disney Junior has also created their own activities to share. Click the images below to learn more about the activities and party printables.

In addition to these wonderful party printables and activities, Disney Junior has released a fun cookie recipe. Display Vamipirina and Demi as delicious treats for any party, including Halloween. Simply follow the recipe below and/or go to the recipe on the Disney Junior’s website.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to beat the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until combined. Then beat in the egg, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Slowly, add the flour and mix until dough is formed.
  4. Roll out dough about 6mm thick with a rolling pin. Cut out cookies using a pairing knife and the Vampirina and Demi template.
  5. Line cookie sheets with baking paper. Space out cookies on sheets so they have enough room to rise. Then bake for 6-8 minutes.
  6. Allow cookies to cool completely before decorating with royal icing.

  8. Beat all ingredients until icing forms peaks (7-10 minutes at low speed with a stand mixer).
  9. For stiffer icing (used for outlining), use 1 tablespoon less water. For the thinned (flood) royal icing add an additional teaspoon of water at a time until you reach a good consistency. Separate frosting in bowls to mix in different colors with food coloring. Place in frosting bags, and cut a small hole in the corners.

  10. Before decorating the cookies, use an edible food marker to outline some of Vee and Demi’s features.
  11. Next, decorate them with icing. First start with the main features and allow them to set for a couple of hours. Then add all the details.
