A few months ago I found a set of adorable teddy bear fondant cutters. The set contained three different sizes with the largest size being only 1 1/2″ long. The second cutter measured at 1″ long and the tiniest cutter measured just a little over 1/2″ long. As soon as I saw these cute bear cutters I knew that I wanted to make these cookies.
These fun little creations start by making a batch of yummy gingerbread dough. Combine all ingredients and on a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to approximately 1/4″ thickness. To keep the dough from sticking, sprinkle additional flour on your work surface as you roll out the cookies. To make the bear shapes I used the 1 1/2′ bear fondant cutter.

Place a dot of white icing over the bear’s heart and place a candy heart on top of the icing. In order to keep the hearts in place, you’ll need to allow the icing to dry. The drying time may vary but I allowed mine to dry for a couple of hours. To keep the cookies fresher longer, store the cookies in an air-tight container. The cookies also make a cute gift. Simply place them in a nice container and give them away to your family, friends, neighbors or co-workers.
I placed a few of the cookies inside a jar that I am up-cycling, added a Valentine ribbon and hot glued a heart button on for an embellishment. My grandchildren will be receiving this jar of Teddy Bear Cookies as Valentine’s Day treats from Grandma Linda.
I hope that you have fun making these adorable Teddy Bear Cookies.
