Finicky Friday - Polar Bear Cookies

Polar Bear Cookies
Create adorable polar bear cookies using mini marshmallows and easy frosting tricks.

Hey everyone, I thought it'd be fun to post some recipes I found online for Christmas. I’m going to *try* to do some of these beforehand, but I’m sure there’ll be times I won't. I'm going to call this Finicky Friday. :)

Serves: 24
Prep: 50 min
Cook time: 10 min
Total time: 105 min

1 pouch (17.5 oz.) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix

1 tablespoon flour

1/3 cup softened margarine or spread (spread should have at least 65% vegetable oil)

1/2 cup Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting

48 miniature marshmallows

1 pouch (7 oz.) Betty Crocker Decorating Cookie Icing chocolate icing

Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, mix cookie mix, flour, melted butter and egg until soft dough forms.

Shape into 24 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown on edges. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Using knife, spread 1 teaspoon frosting on cookie. Immediately sprinkle sugar evenly over frosting. Slightly flatten 2 miniature marshmallows, and press on cookie for ears. Using chocolate icing, pipe eyes, nose and mouth on cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies.
