Pacman Sugar Cookies

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

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

Preheat oven to 350°F!

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 the royal icing, mix together the egg white and the lemon juice together for a few minutes. Add the powdered sugar to the mixture until you get a thick icing. If it’s too thick, add a few drops of water.

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.

Yum! I've always suspected that those ghosts are delicious (why else would Pac Man eat them) you've just confirmed it.
So so cute! I love the eyes. :)
Looks like a lot of fun to eat those delicious ghosts!
