Dinosaur Biscuits
Gluten free, Refined Sugar Free, Egg Free


My little miss 4 is a funny little thing. While she belts out Frozen songs as much at the next girl and does ballet and loves barbie dolls she also absolutely LOVES dinosaurs, dragons, bugs, crocodiles, sharks and trucks and motorbikes.
Myself and my miss 9 often just look at each other mystified as we are both very much girly girls.
Violet's bedroom greets you with dinosaurs and dragons. her favourite colour is green and when she grows up, she wants to be a DRAGON.
Yep.

For her fourth birthday of course it was a Dinosaur Party - you can see the food and party ideas for that one HERE 

These biscuits both my 4 and 9 year olds can make and they both love! Though my 9 year old often makes hers with a love heart instead.


Ingredients

100 grams butter
½ cup coconut sugar or Natvia stevia
1 & ¼ cups gluten free plain flour or spelt flour plain – note spelt is not gluten free only low gluten)
1 teaspoon vanilla paste or essence
¼ teaspoon baking powder (gluten free)
3 tablespoons almond, coconut, soy or dairy milk
¼ cup jam with no sugar added. You will find many of these at supermarkets and health food stores or better yet, make your own yummy jam!
2 tablespoons water
1 potato (or very clean dinosaur)




Method

Pre heat oven to 180’c or 160 if it is fan forced.
Line a baking tray with baking paper, I use non bleached If You Care brand.
Heat jam in a saucepan with the water, stir and set aside.
Cut a large potato in half. Then take one half and score/cut a dinosaur shaped foot print into one side so that it sticks out.
Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until it looks fluffy and well together.
Gently fold in the flour and baking powder with a wooden spoon.
Once mixed well roll into small balls and place on the baking tray.
Flatten down slightly.
Use the potato (or dinosaur) to put a footprint indent into each biscuit.
Fill indents about ½ to ¾ with the jam.
Bake for around 12 minutes or until nice and golden looking and firm.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.



Notes

You can of course swap the dinosaur foot print for a love heart, star, circle etc have fun with it!

  2. Whynot - dinosaurs are cool. My daughters love singing along to J.C Roar and playing pretend sharks and crocodiles. Sharp, scary things aren't just for boys. Anyway, these sweet biscuits look great no matter what you stamp on top!

  4. Love it! My now 3 year old (still coming to terms with it!) has decided dinosaurs are now his favourite creature and he happily spends the majority of his day roaring around the house, so I know he would love these!
