Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Rilakkuma Santa Cookies
With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.
In this recipe, you’ll learn how to make Santa Rilakkuma cookies
1: Ingredients: (For 10 Rilakkumas)
Unsalted butter: 55g
Icing sugar: 25g
White sesame seeds: 30g
Weak flour: 75g
2: Leave the unsalted butter out for a while until it reaches room temperature and then mix until smooth. Next, mix in the sugar, sesame seeds and then flour in that order.
3: Next, split the dough into portions. To make one cookie, you need 15g for the face and 1g of dough for each ear. Arrange your face and both ears as shown in the photo below.
Top tip: Rilakkuma’s face is oval-shaped so don’t make it circular.
4: After you’ve formed all your Rilakkumas, bake them at 180℃ for 15 minutes.
5: Please refer to the video below to decorate Rilakkuma’s face:
Before the cookies get cold, coat them in icing sugar, using a small brush to dust off the excess. Then, wait for the cookies to cool completely before decorating the face. Place a Meiji Apollo Strawberry Chocolate on Rilakkuma’s head for the Santa hat and you’re done.
This is the perfect way to contribute to your next Christmas potluck and it is a flawless plan to impress all your friends.

The umbrella’s design is subtle and sophisticated. The outer rim is lined with a brown coloured lace reminiscent of Rilakkuma. It also has a handle made from high quality wood carved into Rilakkuma’s face. The umbrella also cuts 98% of UV rays meaning it can be used in both clear and rainy weather.
Its beige pink colour with brown lacing gives it a sophisticated feminine design.
Rilakkuma’s facial features on the handle were made using laser cutting and together with the frilly cotton rope tied to it give it a polished and refined look.
There is also a name tag on the umbrella with a nonchalant Rilakkuma logo printed on it.
There is also a separate bag you can purchase to put your umbrella in after it rains so you don’t get the floor wet if you go inside anywhere.
