Footprint Dinosaur Cookies
What we used:
pre made cookie dough
What to do:
Cut the cookie dough into slices. Place on a baking sheet covered with foil. Using foil comes in handy later.
Bake cookies as directed on packaging. You can also follow your favorite sugar cookies recipe and make them if you wish.
Once cookies have finished baking take out of oven. Here is the part were the foil comes in handy, just lift foil with cookies on to the counter top. Now let them start to cool. This is great because you do not have to worry about the hot pan when you start print making.
I could not help but add some colorful sugar to the tops of the cookies while they cooled. We love a little color over here. I had store bought sugar in the pantry but we have also made our own before. See how here, How To Make Colored Sugar.
Do not let the cookies cool more than a few minutes. Take the toy dinosaur and press the feet down into the cookies. Make single or multiple prints per cookie. This is a perfect activity to let kids help with. However, I chose to make these one morning while they were gone as a surprise for them when they got home.
The Dinosaur Footprint Cookies were a big HIT at my house with all 2 children. Ages 1-5yr. I had them on the counter and the boys found them as soon as they came in the house. I loved all the oohs, and ahhs, lol.
