These Bear Hug sugar cookies were inspired by my gingerbread men and candy cane idea. They are just as easy to make and really fun to give because they are a treat within a treat.

  17. Take a wooden skewer and cut it into 4 pieces with a pair of scissors. Place one of the wooden skewer pieces on the bear arm and then fold the arm down until the bear looks like it’s holding the skewer. Continue for the rest of the cookies

  19. Bake for 8-10 mins. Using a spatula, carefully move the cookies onto a cooling rack. Once the cookies are completely cooled, carefully remove the skewers.
