It was in the 70′s here this week! What in the world is going on with our weather? I want to go throw snowballs, make snowmen and snow angels. I even have a plan for a polar bear snowman! I am going to give him big feet and funny hair! All I need is snow to put my plan in action! Hehe I guess I will have to settle for these polar bear cookies instead.
Supplies for Polar Bear Cookies:
You might recognize this cutter. It is Karen’s Baby Cutter but, I adjusted it a little. I cut off the ears and moved them to the top of the head so it would look more like a bear instead of a baby. If you chill the dough before you cut it, it is super easy and you won’t misshape the dough. It makes a perfect polar bear cookie.
First, outline the bear body and feet with the white icing. Have fun with the outline. I wanted a furry look so I made the edges a little jagged but, I think it would be really cute if he had smooth edges also.
Then, outline the arms and the top of the feet.
Next, with a food safe marker, draw the top of the heart.
With the white icing, flood the face (not the nose) and feet. While the face is wet, add the 4mm beads for the eyes. If you don’t have the beads, you can use black icing. Let this dry for about 20 minutes.
Then, flood the arms and let it dry for a few minutes before flooding the rest of the body. Once your polar bear cookie is flooded, let it dry overnight and then add the heart and nose. I forgot to take a picture of that part so please forgive me. I think I was designing a snow lady polar bear for this guy. *Sigh! If it would only snow!
