2nd Day of Christmas: Cute Teddy Bear Cookies  

Cute Teddy-Bear Cookies
Okay these are incredibly cute as the title says. You'll need a teddy bear cookie cutter which you can get at Amazon. Then you'll need your favorite cookie recipe! Sugar cookies, chocolate chip (minus chips), almond cookies, peanut butter cookies. You name it and it will work. I can really see these going over well with little kids and my honorary grandmother. I might just take her some as she has a passion for anything teddy-bear. Plus, if you make a small batch you can add a couple to gifts. If this is the only cute thing in your gift (which I doubt) you'll be an smashing success.

So say you are going to make Chocolate Cookies for some Black or Grizzly Bear cookies.

2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temp
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup dutch process cocoa powder
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
White sanding sugar for garnish

Mix It Up

  1. In a large bowl mix butter and sugar with hand mixer until creamed together.

  2. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix until combined.

  3. In medium bowl mix cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.

  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients into large bowl. Mix until incorporated.

This is where your cookies go from being chilled to being rolled out.

  1. Spread between parachament paper and roll out with rolling pin. You might want to chill this in the frig for a hour or two for easy use.

  2. Use bear cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Place on parchment covered cookie sheet.

  3. Use a pin or a tooth pick to make eyes and a mouth.

  4. Cover with sanding sugar.

  5. You can use any left over dough for tails or eat it.

  6. Place the almond, cashew or whatever you want your bear holding on the bear and fold its arms over it.

  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes on whatever your recipe calls for. These chocolate cookies back on 350 (my gas over cooks them on 325).

  8. When they are done let them cool and then share them with friends and family as gifts or goodies.

I think they'd make a great gift for families and I think you could do this with a Santa cookie or anything else with arms like this. And if you are feeling really fun. Do different shapes for a more diverse box of cookies. So cute next to all those Christmas Cookies and if you are feeling really festive you could decorate them further with frostings. I can see little santa hats on them.

Aren't they crazy cute! I mean you could make different bears with different cookie dough too! I was so excited when I found this!

Yes, they are! I was thinking in the line of add two of them to the presents, holding them by the ribbons, and using frosting to match them with the paper.
Well, I always go a little crazy on Christmas :P

That sounds like a brilliant idea. If you do it please post a picture because I would LOVE to see it!

I love Christmas. It is hard not to go a little nuts. LOL

This looks like an awesome recipe. I'm sure going to try it - probably not until after Christmas when we get back, but still, worth a go. the kids will love them.

Thank you!

That's right you are going to Disneyland! So exciting and I'm jealous. Well I hope you enjoy making these when you get a chance.

First time for me! I'm so excited. And the weather out there looks awesome - I hope it stays hot. I mean it's not really COLD here at +2C, but it'd be nice to have 20+ temps. The highs are around 27 right now and I'd love to see that.

I will, thanks!
Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 8th, 2015 12:24 am (UTC)
Do you still have those links for all the hidden secrets at Disneyland because I have never hunted them down but I want to next time I go.

Yes, 27C would be an amazing trip. I'm going to guess it will stay around there... possibly drop just a little. Anaheim doesn't get severe weather so it should be okay but I will pray it doesn't rain because that isn't fun.

Also tell your boys to listen really well when it line for Star Wars because their is hilarious dialog going on with droids and such.

I don't know. I imagine I kept that but you could always send me the links again in case I can't find them easily. Thanks.

The long range forecast looks to be more normal temperatures for Anaheim, but still, +20 is lovely and I'll take it!

I will! We can't wait for the Star Wars stuff. We'll be going to see the movie the day before we leave. :)
Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 11th, 2015 11:18 pm (UTC)
I sent you an email with a couple links. I'd make a list or something so you guys can hunt them all down.

Yes it would.

Cool. We'll probably see it soon after it comes out.

I hope you all have an amazing trip.

Thanks, I got it. Will do. I'm sure we will. I can't wait to just go and be somewhere else. Today it's snowing so I feel that way even more!
Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 18th, 2015 09:54 pm (UTC)
I bet!

Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 8th, 2015 12:24 am (UTC)
Me too! I hate the rolling part but sometimes during the holidays I'll do it. VERY rarely.

So cute, but it seems like a lot of work.
Gonna save this one, might give them a try if I can.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 8th, 2015 12:25 am (UTC)
Yes, the rolling them out part is. I almost never roll out dough and usually the only time of the year I will is Christmas time.
