Dino biscuits


185 g butter

220g caster sugar

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

375g plain flour

1 egg

1 egg yolk – extra

A few drops of food colouring

A couple of dinosaur to make footprints with!



  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line two trays with baking paper.
  • Place the butter, sugar and vanilla into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for approximately 5 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  • Add the flour, egg, extra egg yolk and food colouring. Beat together to form a smooth dough.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured bench and lightly knead before wrapping it in cling wrap and popping into the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Roll out dough (to a thickness of approximately 5mm) between two sheets of baking paper and use a 8cm round cutter to cut out the biscuits and place onto the prepared baking trays.
  • Gently press your dinosaur into the biscuits to create the footprints and repeat until all of the dough has been used.
  • Bake for 12 – 14 minutes. Allow the biscuits to cool on the trays for 10 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
