Ingredients

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 182 calories, 9 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 25 mg cholesterol, 148 mg sodium, 23 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and brown sugar. Beat in the corn syrup and eggs. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 4-in. bear-shaped cookie cutter. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Roll leftover dough into small balls; press gently into each cookie, forming the bear's muzzle, nose and eyes.
  3. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool. Using gel or frosting, decorate each bear's face, paws and ears and form a bow tie. Yield: about 3 dozen.
Editor's Note: Reduced-fat peanut butter is not recommended for this recipe.
