These delightful treats are perfect for fans of Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, My Melody, and all the lovable Sanrio characters. So, let's dive into the recipe and create some edible works of art!


To make these charming Sanrio Character Cookies, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • Your favorite sugar cookie dough (homemade or store-bought)
  • Gel food coloring in various colors
  • Royal icing (store-bought or homemade)
  • Piping bags or plastic ziplock bags
  • Small round piping tip
  • Edible markers (optional)
  • Assorted sprinkles for decoration (optional)


1. Prepare the Cookie Dough:

Start by preparing your sugar cookie dough according to your favorite recipe or using store-bought dough. Ensure that it is chilled and ready to be rolled out and cut into shapes. You can use Sanrio-shaped cookie cutters or a sharp knife to hand-cut the desired shapes.

2. Color the Cookie Dough:

Divide your cookie dough into smaller portions depending on the number of Sanrio characters you want to create. Using gel food coloring, tint each portion of dough with the appropriate colors for each character. For example, use pink for Hello Kitty, yellow for Pompompurin, and so on. Knead the dough until the colors are evenly distributed.

3. Shape and Bake the Cookies:

Roll out each colored dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use your Sanrio-shaped cookie cutters or templates to cut out the shapes. Place the cookies onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving a little space between each one. Bake according to your sugar cookie recipe's instructions, or until the edges are lightly golden. Allow them to cool completely before decorating.

4. Decorate with Royal Icing:

Prepare your royal icing by following the instructions on the packaging or using your favorite recipe. Divide the icing into separate bowls and tint each bowl with the desired colors for each character. Transfer each color of icing to separate piping bags or plastic ziplock bags fitted with a small round piping tip. Outline the shapes of your Sanrio characters with the appropriate colored icing and then fill in the center with the same or contrasting color.

5. Add Details and Personalize:

Once the base layer of icing has set, use different colors of icing to add eyes, noses, mouths, and other details to bring your Sanrio characters to life. You can also use edible markers to draw additional features or expressions. Get creative and have fun with the decorating process! You can even add sprinkles or edible glitter to add extra sparkle and charm.

6. Let them Dry and Enjoy:

Allow the decorated Sanrio Character Cookies to dry completely before handling or packaging them. Once the icing is dry and hardened, you can store them in an airtight container for up to a week. Share them with friends, give them as gifts, or simply indulge in their adorableness yourself.

There you have it, my fellow dessert enthusiasts, a delightful recipe for making your very own Sanrio Character Cookies.
