I used my FAVORITEΒ sugar cookie recipe and cut out dinosaur pieces and then I DECORATED them with homemade marshmallow fondant and edible markers.

If you DON’T like fondant, you can decorate these cookies in royal icing too.

I had TWO types of dinosaur cutters in my collection but I have no idea what their real names are…

The tutorial for the small and fat dinosaur cookie can be found at Cake Journal and the tutorial for the long and skinny dinosaur cookie can be seen below…lol.
