Picture of Mr. Saturn Sugar Cookies
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

Picture of 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.

Step 2: Create the Cookies

Preheat oven to 350°F!

Dust down some flour and roll out the dough so it’s about 1/4″ thick.  Cut out a large circle shape, a medium circle shape, and two small circle shapes. This makes for one Mr. Saturn. Repeat until you run out of cookie dough.

On a cookie sheet, take a large circle shape and press two smaller circles near each other to create the feet. Repeat for until all the feet are attached.

Place the medium circle shapes on another cookie sheet.

Bake for about 6 minutes for the medium circles, and about 8 minutes for the larger cookies. When they’re golden brown, take out of the oven and allow to cool.

These are GREAT! I love the simple tricks you used to make feet (when you don't have a cookie cutter for the correct shape) and nose (for dimension). I also love that there is a separate step for the bow; the bow IS very important!
