Your favorite recipe for sugar cookies (we used an instant mix)
4-5 oz. light brown fondant
1-2 oz. pink fondant
1-2 oz. black fondant
Circular cookie cutter, about 1.5 inches in diameter
Small bowl of water + brush (optional)
Prepare cookies according to recipe’s/instant mix’s directions.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven according to sugar cookie’s
Roll out the cookie dough until it’s about 1/3 of an inch thick.
Using the circular cookie cutter, cut one dozen circles from your cookie dough. Place
gently on lined baking sheet.
Bake according to recipe’s directions and allow to cool completely before decorating.
Roll out brown fondant until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.
Use cookie cutter to cut out 12 fondant circles.
Press one fondant circle on each cookie.
To assemble one bear:
Roll out 2 small spheres out of the brown fondant, about 1/3 of an inch in size. Flatten each one out until it’s a circle that’s ½ an inch in size.
Roll out 2 small spheres out of the pink fondant, about ¼ of an inch in size. Flatten each one and press onto brown fondant circles.
Place on top of cookie - these will act as the bear’s ears.
Roll out a piece of brown fondant, about 1 inch in size and flatten it to create a smooth
circle, about 1 inch in diameter.
Place on the lower middle portion of the cookie.
Roll out one small pink sphere, about 1/3 of an inch in size. Flatten slightly and place in the center on the one inch circle that was just secured on the cookie. This will act as the bear’s nose.
Roll out 2 black fondant circles, about ¼ of an inch in size. Place both just above the one inch circle - they will act as the bear’s eyes.
Roll out one small black fondant strip and give it an arch. Place just underneath the nose - this will act like the bear’s smile.
Use a paring knife to score little lines down the middle of the round fondant base. These will act as the bear’s “sewed stitches.”
Optional: brush some water on the back of the fondant pieces to help secure them on the
Serve and enjoy!
