Easy Dinosaur Footprint Biscuits

Updated: Apr 13, 2021

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!

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