Dinosaur Skeleton Cookies

These dino-mite Dinosaur Skeleton Cookies are decorated using royal icing for a fun treat that’s perfect for dinosaur-themed birthday parties. Start with our delicious roll-out sugar cookie dough recipe, then use icing colors to tint your icing in shades of green and orange. Finally, use white royal icing to pipe on the dinosaur bones and you’ve got a tasty treat (almost) too cute to eat. Since royal icing dries hard, you can also package these cookies in gift bags to hand out as party favors to family and friends.
