Sugar cookies with royal icing designed after the peaceful and quirky Mr. Saturns from EarthBound.
From the Earthbound Wiki - "They are characterized by huge noses, four whiskers, and a single hair with a small red bow. They are generally very peaceful and generous, offering free stays at the hotel and coffee."
Fun little guys. Here's how to create them in cookie format!
Step 1: Gather the Ingredients and Equipment
Sugar cookie dough
~2 tablespoons flour for dusting
Edible black food marker
Copper / fleshtone food coloring
Mauve / pink food coloring
Red food coloring
For the royal icing - batch one:
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons meringue powder
~1/4 cup water
Royal icing - batch two (it's a very tiny batch):
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon meringue powder
Few drops of water
Sealable plastic bags
3/4" round cookie cutter
1 1/2" round cookie cutter
2 1/2" round cookie cutter
The cookie cutters don't need to be exact, but you'll want roughly the same proportions.
For the sugar cookie dough I used a tube of the stuff, but using your favorite sugar cookie recipe would be an even bigger treat. The royal icing measurements are designed for a dozen cookies, so if you find yourself with way more cookies, you’ll want to adjust the measurements accordingly.
