Dr. Seuss Green Eggs And Ham Cookies

These Dr. Seuss Green Eggs And Ham Cookies are the cutest and pretty easy to make! It just takes a few supplies to decorate these adorable cookies into green eggs!

If you feel baking sugar cookies from scratch to be a little overwhelming, I have a few alternatives for you. Slice and bake dough is ok…really it’s okay! I have cheated in my day. Simply roll out the dough and use a round cookie cutter to make the larger round cookie base. Option two…place an order at a local bakery for plain round sugar cookies and all you have to do is decorate. That’s the fun part!

These Dr. Seuss green eggs and ham cookies are a perfect treat for Dr. Seuss’s birthday, baby showers and kids themed birthday party – or just to be silly! Make these cookies on a rainy day and read stories with the kids!

Now if you love to bake, here is the recipe used for these cookies. I always find the easiest way to cut perfect cookies is to keep the dough cold. I usually break off small amounts and keep the rest in the refrigerator until I need it.

Dr. Seuss Green Eggs And Ham Cookies

Cookie Ingredients:

3 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

  • Pull the cookie dough out of the refrigerator and set it out to soften up a bit.
  • Dust the cutting board with flour, rub flour on the rolling pin and work some flour into the batter. (if needed).
