FOSSIL COOKIES

 

It's one of our favorite recipes! These fossil cookies are almost too cute to eat. Use a small toy dinosaur to make an authentic-looking footprint on your cookies, or a raw pasta shell to make an imprint.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

  • 1 cup sugar

  • ½ cup applesauce

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly beat into butter mixture.

  3. Place dough in center of a sheet of plastic wrap with about a 2-inch diameter and shape into log. Wrap tightly and chill 1 hour.

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices and place on baking sheets. Press a dinosaur toy foot into each cookie.

  5. Bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until golden around edges. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
