Are these the MOST ADORABLE ROLLS you have ever seen??? Kim Davis, blogger at Cinnamon Sugar and a Little Bit of Murder, made these (from scratch!) and the recipe is available on her blog - click here for the link!

I love the tiny tea set, the honey jar, the cuddly brown teddy, and of course, the rolls! I bet they tasted as good as they looked, too.

A PERFECT addition to any picnic, or special tea time, breakfast or dinner menu.

And Kim reviewed Bearly Departed as well, and loved it!  Thanks so much, Kim!

Hosting a "Teddy Bear Picinc" in summer? Here's some great ideas and recipes you might use -- your guests will love them!

Adorable Bear Cookies

3/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar 
1/2 cup packed brown sugar 
1 egg 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
30 miniature milk chocolate kisses
60 miniature M&M baking bits 
Additional sugar 

In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well (dough will be crumbly). Set aside about 1/2 cup of dough for ears. 

Shape remaining dough into 1-in. balls; roll in additional sugar. Place 3 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten to about 1/2-in. thickness. Roll reserved dough into 1/2-in. balls; roll in sugar. Place two smaller balls about 1 in. apart touching each flattened ball (do not flatten smaller balls). 

Bake at 375 for 10 - 12 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven; immediately press one kiss and two baking bits into each cookie for nose and eyes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise!
If you go down to the woods today, you'd better go in disguise!
For ev'ry bear that ever there was will gather there for certain,
’cause today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic!

Start with "teddy bear" sandwiches, then some summery fruit, maybe a veggie, and then cookies or a cake for dessert!
