Noah's Ark Cookie Recipe

Yesterday I reviewed this fun and educational activity book for Kregel Publications.

Inside this book is a recipe to make your own Noah's Ark cookie so I opted to test it out.

Here are the ingredients and steps:

Here is my final result!


Mix together in a bowl:
2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger

Melt together in a separate bowl:
8 tbl of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tbl dark molasses

Pour the melted combination into the dry ingredients bowl and mix.
Stir into a lump and then chill in the fridge.

Roll out the lump on a piece of baking paper.
Cut an ark shape.
Pull away the rest of the dough and lift the ark and paper on to a baking pan.
Bake for about 10 minutes at 325 degrees.
Let cool and then decorate with frosting, icing, candy...etc.

You will have enough dough to make more shapes.

I linked up this post to Lisa's Try a New Recipe Tuesday.



  1. What an adorable idea!!! If you have any cookies left, feel free to send them my way - they look so yummy! :)

    1. Sure, will do! Thanks Jen for stopping by :)

  2. Your cookies turned out so cute! It does look like a complicated shape to produce though- did you use a cookie cutter?!?!!? Without one, I fear I would end up with a cookie that looked more like lopsided canoe than an ark! :)

    1. I did not have a cookie cutter so I used my pizza pizza cutter and did the best I could :) You should try it and see how it comes out. Or have the kids shape it.

  3. Noreen!
    I love love this recipe....How awesome!
    Noreen, I wanted to tell you that I have not been over to your blog --- I have not gotten your blog posts by email...not sure why. I did click "verify" when I did get that verification email and I tried to subs again to you but it says I'm already a subscriber.... I feel badly b.c I love seeing your posts in my inbox! uggh.....
    I realized a while ago that I have not seen your posts and thought you were taking a blogging break, but then looked at my blogroll and saw that you HAVE been blogging and I'm missing. I guess I could always forego the email posts and just click thru from my own blog's roll.....
    Just wanted to stop in and say HI.
    Hope you are having a wonderful Father's Day!

  4. Too cute, Noreen! Now I'm hungry! I love the use of the pizza cutter! Very clever! God Bless!

  5. That looks and sounds delicious and so much fun. Will have to try this out with my own kiddos...once life slows down long enough!
