Have you ever seen a cuter bear in your life? He's just asking for a hug. And his little bird friend is super sweet. And speaking of sweet, take a look at the awesome ingredients in this recipe. These sound fun to make, and we love the fact that you can use whatever cookie you like...graham crackers, gingersnaps, chocolate wafers--the possibilities are endless. Dinara Mirtalipova has contributed several recipes to They Draw and Cook, and each one is a little masterpiece. Dinara was so pleased with how this recipe turned out that she turned this happy bear into her Christmas card this year, sending a Happy Holidays wish from afar.
