How to Make Dinosaur Imprint Cookies: *This recipe contains Peanut Butter. This can be substituted with any nut butter alternative* Here’s what you’ll need: ½ cup Peanut Butter, or Nut Butter Substitute ½ cup unsalted butter, softened ½ cup white sugar ½ cup brown sugar 1 large egg ½ teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon salt 1 ¼ cup flour cinnamon sugar toys for fossil impressions STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. STEP TWO: In either a standing mixer or a large bowl with a hand mixer, combine your butters and sugars. Mix this on high for 1 – 2 minutes until it’s creamy. Once it gets to this consistency, add the egg and vanilla until it’s all mixed together STEP THREE: In a separate bowl sift together the dry ingredients – so the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. STEP FOUR: Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients. I like to do this a little at a time so it gets mixed up evenly. STEP FIVE: Now we have cookie dough! Yummy! You can use a cookie scoop or a spoon to your dough and roll it into a ball. You can make them as big or small as you want. Remember dinosaurs come in all shapes and sizes! Place the ball on your cookie sheet. Make sure each cookie is about a half inch apart. STEP SIX: Bake the cookies for about 8 – 10 minutes. Let them cool for about 5 minutes. STEP SEVEN: Take your dinosaur and press into the cookie creating a fossil! Then to add an extra layer of sweet, take your cinnamon sugar and brush it in your impression.
