You can’t watch Cinderella without these Cinderella cookies. 

You really can’t!

I cannot even begin to count the number of times my sister and I have watched Cinderella, growing up.

I’m sure you would agree, there’s just something about Disney classics that have that extra special something in them.

It was hence only natural I introduced Dottie to all my favorites when she was much younger.

It was only when Disney sent us the celebratory Anniversary Edition pack that I realized Baby Girl had never watched the original Cinderella with me.

Well, it didn’t take long to make that wrong right!

Disney’s Cinderella Anniversary Edition is Here!

The timeless animated classic “Cinderella” waltzes into the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection and the hearts of a whole new generation, on its 70th anniversary. This is the 9th title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection. The classic centers on kind and hardworking Cinderella, who is ordered around by her cruel stepmother, her awful stepsisters — even the big clock in the church tower tells her when to start another day of drudgery. But they can’t stop her from dreaming, and Cinderella has faith that someday her wishes will come true. When an invitation to the royal ball arrives, Cinderella is sure her time has come — until her stepsisters, with the encouragement of Lady Tremaine, tear her gown to shreds. Just when Cinderella believes all is lost, her Fairy Godmother appears, and with a wave of her wand and “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a magnificent coach and Cinderella’s rags into a gorgeous gown, then sends her off to the Royal Ball. But Cinderella’s enchanted evening must end when the spell is broken at midnight. It will take the help of her daring animal mice friends and a perfect fit into a glass slipper to create the ultimate fairy tale ending.

The Cinderella Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray-DVD-Digital HD Combo Pack includes not just the beloved tale of sweet Cinderella but also includes bonus features and two new feature additions :

  • Cinderella” trivia and fun facts, hosted by Ruth Righi and Ava Kolker from Disney Channel’s “Sydney to the Max,” and
  • “In Walt’s Words: Enhanced Edition,” a special edition of “Cinderella” featuring fascinating production details, original storyboards, archival photos, thumbnail sketches and transcripts throughout the feature film.

Rating: G

Running time: 75 minutes (+ Bonus Features that include The making of Cinderella, The Cinderella that almost was, Inspiration for the Fairy Godmother and more)

It’s crazy to think it has actually been 70 years since Cinderella first made her way to the big screen. 

Watching the movie this past weekend, transported me back to my childhood.

Seeing Baby Girl’s eyes sparkle as the Fairy Godmother “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo-ed”,

Wince each time Anastasia, Drizella and Lady Tremaine were just plain outright mean and

Cheer when Cinderelly‘s adorable mouse buddies: Jaq, Gus and the rest of the team rallied around to help her,

reminded me of every emotion I would feel even if I was watching Cinderella for the 12th time.

It’s just one of those classics that never grow old.

As we made plans to watch the movie, we all agreed that we just had to serve Cinderella cookies for our Cinderella movie night.

You can choose to make our cheat version with semi-homemade cookies or bake from-scratch Cinderella sugar cookies.

If you’ve been part of my community for a while now, you will know we love creating themed food and crafts to celebrate.

Baby Girl went to town decorating them to the nines, making them fit enough to be served at the Royal Ball itself!

Ingredients required to make Easy Peasy Semi-Homemade Cinderella Cookies

Cream cheese frosting

Light blue and white sprinkles

Nilla wafers

To put together the cookies:

1. Apply cream cheese frosting on the flat side of a Nilla wafer.

2. Take a second cookie and gently place it over the frosting, to sandwich it, ensuring you smoosh it enough to allow a little frosting to run on the sides

3. Now carefully roll the frosted sides in the sprinkles

And voila!

Such an easy and oh so pretty treat for young kids to make.

How to make Homemade Cinderella Sugar Cookies

While these are delicious as is, you just kick them up another notch when you top these with our homemade cream cheese frosting. Oh and Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo some sprinkles over them to make them just perfect!

Your older kids can make these independently

while the younger ones may need just a little bit of help. (Cinderella had quite a bit of help from her mice friends too!)

Baby Girl had a “ball” decorating the cookies for our movie night

and was really very proud of the way they turned out.

So pretty!

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda and salt

  4. Gradually all the dry mix to the wet, in 3 batches, adding a tsp of milk after each batch

  5. When the cookie batter is mixed well, make 1 inch balls

  6. Place each ball on a cookie tray/pan, gently pressing down on each ball to flatten very lightly

  7. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for approximately 10 minutes.

  8. Remove and cool before frosting each cookie.

If you plan ahead, you can buy this Cinderella cookie cutter set to cut out the perfect Cinderella-inspired cookie shapes.
