To make this playful treat for your next kid party, start by creating the mask templates. If you enlarge the photo below, you can trace the faces directly from your computer screen on a piece of parchment paper, or BHG.com has made templates for you to print: Bunny Template & Raccoon Template.
my recipe for the sugar cookie dough.
Lightly dust the parchment paper with flour and then roll out your dough. Place the mask template.
Using a sharp knife or Xacto, cut around the raccoon mask pattern.
Place a wooden skewer on top of the cookie and press additional cookie dough on the top to help secure the skewer. Flip the cookie mask to another piece of parchment (so the extra dough bakes on the bottom of the cookie) and bake at 350F for approximately 12 minutes. Remove the cookie from the oven as the edges just start to slightly brown.
You will need to mix gray, black and pink royal icing colors along with plain white royal icing. Using the white royal icing, pipe the bunny outline as seen below:
After the outlined icing sets a bit, flood the bunny cheeks, one tooth and both ears. Place white sugar pearls for the bunny whiskers while the icing is wet or come back after the icing sets and pipe three little dots of white icing. Continue flooding the rest of the bunny face and then the other tooth (you want one tooth to set up so there are two distinct teeth instead of one giant tooth).
Pipe and fill the white portions of the raccoon mask. Continue with the gray sections. You can also fill the bunny nose with the gray icing now. Pipe and fill the black portion of the raccoon mask.
Let the black icing set up before piping the raccoon nose, so the nose does not spread into the raccoon's black mask. Fill the pink bunny ears and black raccoon nose.
