How-To: Bigfoot Print Cookies

These Bigfoot print cookies were a fun addition to our trip to Calaveras Big Trees State Park recently, and incredibly easy to decorate. I got the idea for them after discussing statistical probabilities of running into the hairy fellow while on our trip (in case you haven't already caught on, I'm kind of a cheese-ball).

Since I used a packaged sugar cookie mix, this is more of a how-to. Check out how I made and decorated these fun cookies below.

Getting Started

Once the dough was prepared, I rolled it out and cut it into shapes using a round cookie cutter. I then used a measuring spoon (1/2 teaspoon) to make the foot impressions in the raw dough (my Bigfoot ended up only having 4 toes, but maybe he was born that way!).

After the shapes were cut, I placed them on a cookie sheet and baked them according to package directions. When I removed them from the oven, most of the footprint shape had filled in, so I took the measuring spoon and went over the shape again while it was still hot. I waited for the cookies to cool, then "cast" my footprints with white icing!

Wrapping it up

Whether you are on the lookout for Bigfoot or not, these cookies are easy to decorate and lots of fun! Now if you will excuse me, Harry and the Hendersons is calling my name! ;)
