Teddy Bear Cookies

I made Teddy Bear Cookies! They are so yummy and easy to make!


I cup of sugar

1 cup of butter, (2 sticks)  softened

1 egg

2 1/4 cup flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

powdered sugar

miniature chocolate chips

red hots


In large bowl,  combine sugar and butter. Beat until light and fluffy. Add egg, beat well. Add flour and cinnamon. Blend well . Cover dough with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For each cookie shape dough into 1-inch balls and space them on your baking sheet 2 inches apart.

Flatten slightly. Shape 3 (1/4 inch) balls. Place two balls for ears and one for a snout.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes.

The cookies will be firm and slightly golden brown.

Immediately sprinkle with powdered sugar. Add a red hot on the snout and two miniature chocolate chips for the eyes.

Don't they look cute? These also look really adorable on popsicle sticks.

This recipe makes approximately 2 dozen cookies. And they would be fabulous to serve at a Baby Shower. 

Quick Tips: Make sure that the eyes are not melty when you stack the cookies. Also a flour sifter works great for distributing the powdered sugar.
