Chocolate Teddy Bears
 
2/3 cup  butter or margarine*
1 cup  granulated sugar
2 tsp  vanilla extract
2   eggs
2-1/2 cup  all-purpose flour
1/2 cup  unsweetened cocoa or dutch-process cocoa
1/2 tsp  baking soda
1/4 tsp  salt
 
preheat oven to 350 degrees f. in large mixer bowl beat butter, sugar and 
vanilla until light and fluffy. add eggs; blend well. combine flour, 
cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, blending 
thoroughly. chill until dough is firm enough to handle. to shape teddy 
bears, form: a 1- to 1 1/2-inch ball of dough for the body; a 3/4 - to 
1-inch ball for the head; four 1/2-inch balls for arms and legs; two 
smaller balls for ears; one tiny ball for nose and four tiny balls for 
paws (optional). on ungreased cookie sheet, flatten large ball slightly 
for body. attach medium-size ball for head by overlapping slightly onto 
body. place balls for arms, legs and ears, and a tiny ball on head for 
nose. arrange other tiny balls atop ends of legs and arms for paws, if 
desired. with wooden pick, draw eyes and mouth; pierce small hole at top 
of cookie for use as hanging ornament, if desired. bake 6 to 8 minutes or 
until set. cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack. cool 
completely. store in covered container. if cookies will be used as 
ornaments, allow to dry on wire rack at least 6 hours before hanging. pull 
ribbon through hole for hanging. makes 14 cookies. 
 
* use real butter or stick margarine. do not substitute reduced-fat 
spreads; their higher water content often yields less-satisfactory 
results.
