The trick to these cookies is finding a tulip cookie cutter. Turn it over and it's a perfect pacman ghost! You'll also need a circular cookie cutter about the same size to make the pacmans (pacmen?)
Step 1: Assemble the Ingredients
Sugar cookie dough
1 egg white
2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Tiny bit of flour
Various food paste colors (blue, red, pink, and orange)
Mini chocolate chips
Step 2: Cut Out the Cookies
Dust down some flour, then roll out the cookie dough so it's about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut out the ghost and Pacman shapes from sugar cookie dough.
Pacman is created from a circular cookie cutter and then a pointy bit from another cookie cutter; I used a heart cookie cutter for mine. You can also use a knife instead of a pointy-bit cookie cutter.
Bake for about eight minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
Allow the cookies to cool.
Step 3: Create the Royal Icing
For each character color, scoop roughly one-fourth cup of the royal icing into a bowl. Save a little of the white royal icing; you’ll need it for the last bit.
Dip a toothpick into the bottle of food coloring paste and stir into the icing. With the food paste I used, I needed two dips for to create the blue for the Inky, but the other colors only required only one dip.
Once it’s the proper color, pour the icing into a sealable plastic bag.
Seal the bag, and snip a teeny tiny bit off one of the corners.
