Got a dinosaur lover in your house?

They’ll have a blast making their favorite dinos stomp around to create these yummy cookies.

And eating them is pretty fun too.

If you want to be a little extra creative, you could make “muddy” footprints by adding a touch of water to some cinnamon and having your dinosaurs step in the cinnamon before they stomp of the cookies.

You could also sprinkle your finished cookies with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar — or even decorate them with red icing.

If someone in your house has a nut allergy (or you’re just one of those weird people like my husband who doesn’t like peanut butter desserts), you can substitute your favorite sugar cookie recipe.
