When Dinosaurs are on the menu of the Sugar Cookie Persuasion

I have a Dino crazed toddler in the home so any chance to make food into a Dino is on point and par in my house .

Easy sugar cookie Recipe used to make them
1/2  C butter or margarine
1/2  C sugar
Cream these two together . I added green food coloring into the margarine and sugar mix to get our Dino color.
Add 1 C of  flour  and 1/2 TSP of baking soda and 1 TSP of vanilla.
Mix it all together I am old school and wash my hands thoroughly and use them as my mixers .


I do not chill my dough so you do not need to either and because my Dino loving toddler used my rolling pin in some experimentt and broke it , I just used a cup as a roller , worked just fine .

We used our Dino sandwich cutter to make our cookies .

All cut out and ready to go in the oven . We made our own blue colored sugar (sugar and food coloring easy peasy ) and made some Dino spots .

Cook in a 350 oven for about 7 mins, just till the edges are golden brown.

And there you have it your Dino snack .

Nana's Molasses Cookies

Boil just over half of a cup of molasses close to 3/4
Cream 1/2 cup of shortening and 3/4 cup of sugar . Once molasses is boiled pour over shortening and sugar . In a small bowl mix 1 and 1/2 cups of flour, 1 TSP of salt , 1 TSP of baking powder and 3 TSP of cinnamon ( can omit or use less personal taste )and mix together , then pour into liquid and mix together. Form into balls and roll in sugar, put on an ungreased cookie sheet , flatten with a fork ,

cook at 350 degrees just until you can smell them and then at that point they are done , about 7- 9 min .
They are perfect chewy once they are done , but do harden. If you have any left store in airtight container.
Can yield up to 34 cookies just depends in how large or small you make the balls .
