Dinosaur Tracks Cookie

We took a break to enjoy a week of Seuss, and now we have resumed our Dinosaur Theme that Elliott asked had asked to do.  While looking for some more fun dinosaur activities, I came across Jumbo Dinosaur Tracks Cookie that I just had to try!  It was a very easy recipe, so I figured I could handle it.


I used Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix and followed the directions for making cutout cookies. I separated some dough as instructed, and kneaded in the cocoa powder.  Then I rolled out the remaining dough, but when I cut the dinosaur tracks out of the regular dough, they fell apart, so I just added the scraps and extra cocoa to the other dough.  I'm glad I did, because I needed a little extra to get all of the actual "tracks" cut out.

I didn't have white chocolate chips, so I cut up some white melting wafers.  We also didn't have any nuts, or I would have added them.  Elliott's favorite part of helping was pressing the chips down into the dough.  I had a little chocolate dough leftover, so I just baked it off as cookies.

Of course, both boys were delighted to get their very own dinosaur track to eat!
