Making sugar cookies is fun and easy. I have found that sugar cookies are the one to-be-baked food that we always have ingredients in the household for. I wanted to put a twist on sugar cookie baking the other day to make it more fun for my silly sons and this is what we created…. Sugar Cookie Hands. I also wanted to include the recipe we used for sugar cookies to ensure you know how to make them as fluffy as we did.

Step one is to make the sugar cookie dough according to the ingredients and instructions on the recipe card below.

Once the sugar cookie dough is ready for shaping, you can start with the below steps. Flatten out the dough about 1/4″ thick on wax paper or similar, I used aluminum foil, but wouldn’t recommend that because it honestly ended up sticking to much to the dough.

How to Make Sugar Cookie Hands for Toddlers

Place your child hand on the sugar cookie dough and use a plastic knife or butter knife to trace your child’s hand, let them trace cut it out if they are old enough to utilize a plastic knife or butter knife.  Get the hand shape cut out completely, this is no easy task and may be messy. We honestly ended up with a four finger hand and had to mold a fifth finger onto the dough, hence our odd looking hand below.

Once your hand is all ready, then place it on the cookie sheet to bake as per the instructions for baking found on the below recipe card. Follow baking instructions on the recipe card below and once done, you will have a beautiful hand that mimics your child’s hand. Watch as your child has fun showing off his sugar cookie hand!

    That is scary, creepy, and delicious at the same time What a great idea! Now we are going to try a foot!

    That’s a really cute idea. I haven’t made cookies with the kids in ages, but usually we do cookie cutters when we do. This is way cool, though.

    What a fun idea! My little kids would think this is fantastic because it’s shaped like their hand. My teenage daughters would probably give these hands fun frosting manicures!

    Haha, that’s a cute idea! Would be fun to decorate it with frosting for the nails and a ring or something.

    What a great idea. My toddler would so enjoy doing this and I’m not sure I would want to eat it after making it. :)
