These dragon egg cookies won’t hatch into dangerous, fire-breathing beasts like Daenerys's dragon babies from Game of Thrones. They just simply taste delicious and look devilish.

- Sugar cookie dough
- Sliced almonds
- Food coloring
Cut egg-shaped cookies from sugar cookie dough and bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Place 1/2 cup of sliced almonds in a zip-top plastic bag. Add 7–8 drops of liquid food coloring and shake until almonds are colored. Repeat with additional colors if desired.
Transfer almonds to a parchment-lined baking sheet and spread out. Bake for 6–8 minutes to lock in the color.
Mix 3–4 drops of food coloring into white icing; the color of the icing should match the almond slices.
Frost each cookie, then transfer colored almonds onto the cookies in a scale-like pattern.
