      fossil cookies- fun for a kids dinosaur party

    • Theresa Como Wega

      Fossil Cookies | Martha Stewart Recipes, from Martha Stewart Living, October 2010. I love this easy, spine tingling treat for rocco's birthday party... idea for Halloween. It speaks to the dinosaur-obsessed kid in me, and the recipe is simple enough for easy modifications for special diets.

      Cub Scouts would love whip a bunch of these "fossil cookies" made with plastic bug toys. If you have a budding paleontologist in your house, bake him or her a batch of fossil cookies (recipe on Martha Stewart???s website) for a special treat. I love how the simple act of pressing a plastic insect toy into the top of a sugar cookie transforms it into something so much more interesting. These would be a hit at a bug-loving kid???s birthday party.
