Nice cookie!

I couldn't find the GUMMI DINOSAURS - anywhere - so I just made the cookies without the secret hidden inside, we STILL liked them! They were really very nice with tea and coffee (I liked them with tea, my husband with his coffee). Interesting idea to add the dinosaurs. I will kepp looking so that I can make them for my grandson.

Grandkids loved these. Very easy to make. I added some colored jelly beans to make it looked like little eggs.
