Rilakkuma Cookie

Remember the bear cookies and cupcakes I shared before the school holidays? You can check out that post HERE if you missed it. I made a few designs for the cookies. I am sharing how to make Rilakkuma cookies in this post, you can easily use the same recipe to replicate my previous bear cookies, or even other designs as well. :)

I decorated some of my cupcakes with Rilakkuma cookies.

I feel that the cookie colour is a little too dark for Rilakkuma, you might want to reduce the cocoa powder further in the recipe I'm sharing below.

I used a Rilakkuma cutter to cut out the cookies this time. I will share how to make similar cookies without a cutter next time.


235g plain flour/cake flour
5g cocoa powder
100g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
100g fine castor sugar
pinch of salt
2 egg yolks
Wilton yellow colouring gel

  1. Cream butter and sugar till it turns pale and fluffy, adding in the sugar in 3 additions.
  2. Add in egg yolk and mix well. Weigh and divide the mixture into 3 portions of 150g, 60g and 30g.
  3. Divide plain flour in portions of 145g, 60g and 30g.
  4. Sift in 145g of plain flour, 5g of cocoa powder to 150g of the mixture in step 2, mix well till a dough is formed. This will be the chocolate coloured dough. Sift in 60g of plain flour to 60g of the mixture in step 2, mix well till a dough is formed. Sift in 30g of plain flour to 30g of the mixture in step 2, add in some Wilton yellow colouring gel using a toothpick. Mix well till a dough is formed. Wrap the dough using cling wrap and refrigerate for half and hour.

  6. Remove dough from fridge, roll out the chocolate dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper. Keep rolling till the dough becomes softer. Cut out cookies using a Rilakkuma or bear cutter.

  8. Roll out the plain coloured dough and cut out oval for the tummy. If you do not have a cutter, you can use knife to cut out and shape the dough with your hands.

  10. Cut out oval for the mouth.

  12. Roll out the yellow coloured dough, cut out the ears. I simply cut out a little of the dough and used my hands to mould for this step. Line tray with baking paper and bake at 170 degrees celcius for around 15 minutes.

  14. After the cookies have cooled down, you can add in the details using chocolate and decor gel.
