It may still be cold outside but this cozy little polar bear cookie sure will warm your heart!
To get started, you will need:
- Baked and cooled polar bear sugar cookie shapes.
- Medium thick royal icing in white and dark blue
- Thick royal icing in black
Step 1. Outline and flood the polar bear with the medium thick white icing. Cover the whole cookie.
Step 2: Immediately sprinkle wet icing with tiny white non-pareils. Note: if you don’t get the edges of the icing covered with the non-pareils, try gently dipping the edge of the cookie into the bowl of non-pareils. Use a spoon to help attached them to the wet icing. Let cookie dry 2 hours.
Step 3: Add the ‘ear and eyes and nose” with black icing to the cookie. Add the rear leg in black icing. Let dry 2 hours.
Step 4: Add “fuzzy scarf” by piping blue medium thick icing on the bears neck. Immediately sprinkle with white sanding sugar. Shake off excess sugar. Let cookie dry 2 hours or overnight. You’re done!
Tips: Package cookie in clear cellophane bags tied with raffia. This is a nice cookie to include with a coffee mug and a pack of hot coca mix. Yumm!
