Summer Fun Day 69 - Gummy Belly Bear Cookies

Using fruit snacks instead of gummy bears in our popsicles left us with plenty of bears for trying out The Baking Robot's gummy bear thumbprint cookie recipe.

The cookies turned out to be buttery and delicious, though not nearly as pretty as The Baking Robot's, and not quite as much fun as we had hoped.  The cookies were good, but we missed the bears.

Happily, that problem was easily rectified by adding a few extra balls of dough to each cookie...

...before baking.

One Tip:  It's best to let these cookies cool completely before moving them from pan to plate, or they might just loose their heads in the excitement.

It's great to be a homeschooler.

You know, I was just thinking this week it would be nice to have an idea for a bear activity that involved cookies. Then I thought, I bet unschooling Mom has something, and here it is! Love all your cookie fun!
