Jurassic World is coming *Raptor screech* and it’s safe to say me and my bestie are rather excited about this fact, and if you’re not excited by this fact just yet then this tasty treat should do the Trick. So to get us even more in the mood she had the best idea. DeanoDino cookies!!
225g/8oz softened butter
140g/5oz caster sugar
1 egg yolk beaten lightly
Half a tsp of vanilla extract
280g/10oz plain flour
Pince of salt
Place butter and sugar into a large bowl and beat together until light and fluffy.
Beat in egg yolk and vanilla extract.
Sift in the flour and salt and stir until thoroughly combined.
Next you’ll want to halve the dough and shape into balls before wrapping in cling film and leaving to chill for 30-60mins.
Preheat your oven and line your trays with baking paper.
Unwrap your dough and roll out between two sheets of baking paper until your desired thickness. Avoid going too thin and your dinos will burn
Get that cookie cutter and go nuts!! Roll. Cut. Place on tray. Repeat. Place into oven for 10-15mins of till golden brown.
Once cooked, place onto a wire tray to cool before decorating.
To decorate we used royal icing and water and using a piping bag to apply to our dinosaurs, to help fill in gaps use a cocktail stick, or a length of uncooked spaghetti. Whatever’s handy, we won’t judge. I think they look more like Raptors and find it kinda odd that he’s only got one leg. Alice screams in the background “It’s his profile!” See you in the next post.
