"D" for Dinosaur Cookies

We were going to make these “D” cookies last Friday when “Daddy” came home from his business trip.  But since Big Brother had a stomach bug the day before, I didn’t think that would be a good idea.  Big Brother started feeling better yesterday (after getting a 2nd round of it Saturday night), so I thought we would make these cookies.  :)

Here’s what you’ll need:  sugar cookie dough (either homemade or store-bought), “D” cookie cutters, and Dinosaur sprinkles!

1.  Mix up the dough (or remove it from the package) and then roll it out on the counter.

2.  Use the cookie cutters to punch out the D’s from the dough.  Our cookie cutters were way smaller than I remembered, so we ended up making mini cookies.

3.  Lay them on the cookie sheet and bake as directed.

4.  Frost.

5.  Cover with Dinosaur Sprinkles.  We got our sprinkles in the cake-decorating section at Target.  It is a Wilton sprinkle assortment. 

They’re finished and ready to share!

The “How Do Dinosaurs” series of books by Jane Yolen (illustrated by Mark Teague) are absolutely adorable!  These dinosaurs are personified, making these books even more entertaining and endearing to young children.  Check out at least a couple books from this series–they’re sure to be favorites.  :)
