This a a great cookie, but take a good vanilla butter cookie and along with the teddy bear cookie formula, make panda bear cookie for a spin on this cookie!

I have loved this recipe since I was little (in the 80s)...one important thing allrecipes leaves out is CHILL DOUGH FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS before trying to make the bears. Overnight is best.

I've loved this recipe ever since I first tried it back in junior high school! It's a simple recipe with common, "on-hand" ingredients. It's a little putzy, as it takes some time to shape the cookies. But kids love to help, and the cookies are super-cute (and super yummy)! I usually save these for special occasions because of the time involved. They make a wonderful holiday tradition!
