These tasty sugar biscuits are the perfect recipe for making with the kids.
Do you have a dinosaur lover at home? These dinosaur footprint biscuits are a fun take on the standard sugar cookie and very simple to make. So if you are looking for a kid-friendly activity to keep the little ones occupied I definitely recommend them.
My son had so much fun rolling the dough out and pressing the dinosaur into each cookie to form the footprint.
We did them a medium-soft but you can make them thinner or bake them longer if you prefer a crisper cookie.
Such a perfect afternoon treat with a glass of milk.
I'd love to hear if your kids help out in the kitchen in the comments below!

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix into a dough (you can use a mixer, we used our hands)

Shape the dough into a long roll, then cut into slices

You can also fill the footprints with your favourite jam to make jammy biscuits!
