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.
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!
Thanks BunnieBard!! :)
You just combined two of my favorite things. Awesome!
Thanks kenkaniff! I'm glad you like them! :)
