Cookie dominos are a great way to get kids interested in the kitchen AND math.

Cookie Dominos

Print Recipe


  • sugar cookie dough, chilled (packaged or use your favorite recipe!)
  • table knife
  • spatula
  • baking sheet
  • 1 can white frosting (although we made ours without the frosting. Or make it homemade!)
  • 1 tube black decorator's icing (available in supermarket baking section)


  • Roll out the chilled cookie dough to ¼" thickness.
  • Have your child cut the dough with the table knife into domino-sized rectangles, approximately 1¼" x 2¼" each.
  • Transfer the cookie tiles to the baking sheet with a spatula.
  • Bake the cookies according to the recipe or package directions until golden at the edges, approximately 10 minutes.
  • While the cookies are still warm, have your child carefully cut off the edges of each one with a knife to create a sharper rectangle shape.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely.
  • Help your child spread a smooth, thin layer of white frosting on top of each cookie. Place the cookies in a single layer on a flat plate or baking sheet.
  • Refrigerate the frosted cookies for 30-45 minutes to allow the frosting to set.
  • Have your child draw a line across the middle of each cookie with the black decorator's icing and add dots on either side in domino patterns.
