Dinosaur Track Cookies

So this is really just a cute little take on a standard sugar cookie, but you wouldn’t know that from how much fun my little guy had making these. He thought this was just about the coolest thing ever, from the fact that he was getting to make cookies, to rolling out the dough, to pressing the dinosaur’s feet down, to decorating.

The audio track to this picture is “Stomp, stomp, dinosaur stomp stomp.” It was really pretty cute. 

Anyway, the cookies are pretty easy to make. I use a no-chill sugar cookie dough to cut time. We then roll it out and cut it with a mason jar lid to make little circles. 

That’s when the dinosaur stomp-stomp stuff comes in. We clean off one of Alex’s dinosaurs, then press its feet into the dough. Once the cookie has been adequately stomped, they get moved to a greased cookie pan.

Once the cookies are baked, you can leave them as-is, which is adorable enough, or you can fill the tracks with those tubes of icing gel.

And that’s that! You could add interest to these by changing up your gel colors, or dying your cookie dough. I think they’re awesome this way, though 🙂

  1. Looks like a really easy recipe and love the idea. Could you just add the temperature which the oven needs to be set at?
