When you become a mother to a son, some things are certain. First, you will become an expert in every type of construction truck during the toddler stage and the passion for all things trucks and cars never seems to end. I imagine this is equivalent to a little girl’s love for all things princesses. Second, your son’s interest in dinosaurs enters into their young life and their imaginative play with these colorful, detailed figurines is endless. After receiving his first pack of dinosaurs for his birthday, courtesy of his Aunt Mary, his interest in dinosaurs soon followed. Of course that require us to visit a nearby dinosaur state park and see actual dinosaur tracks. After this experience I knew I had to make a batch of cookies inspired by this new passion. Dinosaur Snickdoodle cookies are here!
Snickerdoodle cookies are typically drop cookies that puff up and spread on your baking sheet. I did some research and found a few recipes that would accomplish a great cut out cookie and maintain that classic taste. My kitchen helper loves all things cinnamon and sugar so these cookies were already going to be a hit, but when I told him that we were going to use his dinosaur figurines to press tracks into the cookie dough, well excitement was an understatement. They resembled the tracks we just saw at the state park and he was in amazement. If anything this recipe is a great canvas to take your kitchen helpers passions and turn it into a tasty sweet treat.
Think about all the things your kitchen helper is passionate about, what cookie shape would you make? Leave a comment, I can’t wait to hear all the fun cookie shapes.
