Cinnamon Polar Bears

What they are suppose to look like!
This polar bear got caught in our snow storm!

Oops, I didn't schedule this one recipe typed up yet...oh well-- maybe after work today! Sorry. These are such cute kids cookies and they have a nice cinnamon flavor. Watch for the recipe...coming soon!


Here it is!

Cinnamon Polar Bears

1 cup sugar

1 cup butter or margarine-softened

1 egg

2 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp cinnamon

powdered sugar

1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips

red cinnamon candies

Beat sugar and butter/margarine until fluffy. Add in egg and beat well. Add flour and cinnamon. Blend well. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour for easier handling ( I think overnight would have been better)

Heat oven to 350° (to get the degree symbol press ALT 0176...just a tip there).

Shape each cookie into a 1 inch ball. (I used my #60 scoop, which makes a slightly larger ball I think). Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet (I use my silpat baking sheet) Flatten slightly. (Not too much here...I just used the bottom of a flat glass to doesn't take much) Shape some dough into 3 (1/4 inch) balls. Place 2 balls above and touching larger ball for ears and 1 ball on top of cookie to resemble snout. Flatten slightly. (just a wee bit here)

Bake 350° for 11-15 minutes (I baked mine 10 minutes) or until firm to the touch. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Lightly sprinkle cookies with powdered sugar. Press 2 chocolate chips into each cookie for eyes and 1 cinnamon candy for nose. (Important to do this while cookie is still hot or the candy won't stick )

This recipe says it makes 48, but count on about 24 or so. I made a double batch.

Pin It!
