3D Dinosaur Cookies

{click photo to see face details}

My husband’s sole request for his birthday was a simple one: sugar cookies.

They aren’t the prettiest looking dinosaur cookies, but I’m so excited that they were successfully assembled over the weekend so I had to share.

I thought I would spice it up with some dinosaur cutouts, but in my search, I found something better, these 3D dinosaur cookie cutters! They wowed our dinner guests and most importantly, the birthday boy.

I used Alton Brown’s sugar cookie recipe.┬áNot only were they pretty, they were pretty tasty!

Some tips:

  • There’s no need to make two dozen, each dinosaur has at least three pieces. People will want to share.
  • If you’re trying to dye the batter, add lots of color. The green faded after baking.
  • Wait til the cookies have cooled to assemble. In my excitement, I tried to do this while they were still slightly warm. And of course, it crumbled.
  • To prevent cookies from spreading in the oven, chill the cut outs in the fridge for 10 minutes before baking.

Now I just need another reason to whip up another batch….
