Inside Out Movie Review & Inside Out Cookie Recipe

Disney invited me to an all expense paid trip to Los Angeles in exchange for sharing it with you. As always, all opinions 100% my own.

Inside Out is a poignant look at the development of childhood emotions told through the bright and colorful way that Pixar is known for. I love it!!

As a mom who is constantly trying to teach her daughter about the world, Inside Out has given me a way to teach my daughter about each emotion. I have been lucky enough to see the movie twice and once I brought my daughter. She sat through the entire movie in the theater! It was extremely impressive! She was captured by the music and the beautiful colors. Also, the characters are now becoming part of her everyday play now. At nearly two years old, she can say the words Anger and Sadness.

The movie doesn’t shy away from the pain of being adolescent. It uses mundane moments that seem trite in any other movie, like having a bad day at school, to show how the emotions interact with each other.

I like the how they showed things that happen in real life. You can see that Riley was suppressing her sadness when Joy puts her in the circle and keeps her busy reading manuals. In the end, the movie does an amazing job of showing that all emotions are equally valid if expressed properly.

The moment with the Dad was very interesting to me as well. All the emotions are on red alert because they might need to put their foot down with Riley. I was expecting yelling, but instead the Dad just sends Riley to her room. For the Dad, this is his way of putting his food down. Showing that the lead emotions in the Dad’s head might be Anger, but he can express the anger in an effective way.

WHAT ARE THEY THINKING? -- Pixar Animation Studios takes audiences inside the mind of 11-year-old Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Guided by her five Emotions - Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith), Fear (voice of Bill Hader), Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) and Anger (voice of Lewis Black) - Riley struggles to adjust, and when Fear, Disgust and Anger are left in control, even a simple family dinner takes an unexpected turn. Also featuring the voices of Diane Lane as Mom, Kaitlyn Dias as Riley and Kyle MacLachlan as Dad, Disney•Pixar's "Inside Out" opens in theaters nationwide June 19, 2015. ©2014 Disney•Pixar.

Overall, the movie made me laugh out loud and cry. I will probably see it again in the theaters and will definitely buy it as soon as it comes out!

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup powder sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted sweet cream butter softened
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tarter
  • 2 ½ cup flour
  • --
  • Royal ICING
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tarter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups powder sugar

Instructions

  • Cream together sugar, butter, vanilla, and egg.
  • Then add in the baking soda, cream of tarter, and flour.
  • Use a spoon to mix and then use hands to mix some more until able to form into a ball.
  • Place in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate for one hour.
  • Pull out and let sit out for 30 minutes.
  • Use rolling pin and roll out dough onto a floured surface.
  • Using your cookie cutter begin to cut out your cookies and place them on a un-greased cookie pan
  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes
  • Remove from oven and let sit for 1 hour before frosting
  • --
  • Combine into a mixing bowl and mix until stiff peaks form.
  • You can use a hand mixer or stand mixer
  • If no peaks are forming add in more powder sugar.
  • Decorating the cookies
  • Use a plague or a square cookie cutter ( Hobby Lobby or any major box chain store )
  • Print out on the computer the faces from Inside Out characters I would suggest 4 of each one on one sheet of paper as seen
  • Place the print out on a cookie pan and tape it down
  • Cover the paper on the pan with wax paper and tape that down also
  • You do not want movement while decorating
  • Take you icing a food coloring and mix into separate bowls of each color you will need. I would suggest doing ONLY 1 character at a time.
  • Fill each color into a plastic icing tube pictured below
  • Trace the picture with the icing. I suggest doing the color that shows the most first. Its just like when you and you had paint by numbers.
  • Once the art piece is done let sit for 4 hours
  • Trace the outside of the cookie with a white, then "flood" the inside of the cookie with more white to cover the whole cookie
  • use a butter knife to evenly spread the icing let sit 2 hours
  • Remove the art piece VERY CAREFULLY and place it int he center of the cookie the white royal icing will be a glue and it will sink into the icing to look like one solid piece.
  • Let sit for 4 hours.... If it is humid or rainy it will take longer
