• ROLL out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch-thickness. Cut out dough using 4-inch bear-shaped cookie cutter; place, 2 inches apart, on greased baking sheets. Reroll scraps and use to cut additional cookies. Decorate with small candies, raisins or sprinkles for eyes, mouth and buttons, pressing decorations lightly into dough to secure.
