I have been making these cookies for about 20 years now. My kids call these cookies Prayer Bear cookies. They went to Wednesday Morning Bible School when they were three years old. And there was a video they watched there and the character in the video was a teddy bear called Prayer Bear.I did a search and here is a very short video clip for you.
cAnyhow, my three were very fond of Prayer Bear and since I had just begun baking these cookies, which are actually called 'Beary Cute Cookies' by Taste of Home, these became a very popular snack provided by me over the course of the years for each of the children.🐻 If you would like to give this cookie recipe a try, the link to the recipe is right HERE You will notice that the faces of the little bears look slightly different now. They felt they needed to update them I suppose after this many years. I was surprised by that when I looked up the recipe to give you the link. I prefer my version, the old original sweet, plain teddy bear faces. To each their own I guess.
Any Peanut Blossom fans out there?
What else have I been up to? I have had a vision of a white wreath with pink accents. Imagine that!!😉So I have been making that come true! With fabric stars! I originally saw the directions to make fabric stars on CraftGossip many months ago and printed them off, knowing I wanted to make them as gifts for Christmas. Then I realized I would also use them in this wreath. I will tell you right now that they are much more time consuming to make then I ever thought they would be. If you want much easier instructions to make them go here to our friend Cindy's YouTube Tutorial. Click on the video below. Her instructions are SO MUCH EASIER than the ones provided by CraftGossip! Thank you Cindy!!
This is the first month all year that I do not have the floral wreath for my cubby shelf completed before the month has begun. I have put everyone else first. I must! It will get done. Very soon!
I hope you have an excellent weekend my friends! I am no longer stressing out. Well, hardly. It is all getting done.
