My brother asked me to make Star Wars cookies for a co-worker’s birthday and I was so excited. The only problem was there was too much good stuff to make cookies of, so I went to the biggest Star Wars
nerds superfans that I knew and asked what they most wanted to see in cookie form.
Things that made the list but not the cookie sheet were:
Princess Leia (in slave girl outfit of course!)
Ton-Ton (the critter Han cuts open for Luke to sleep inside)
Rancor eating pig dude
Jabba the Hutt
Those cookies ended up on the cutting room floor either because they would be too unappetizing (can you imagine eating that slimy, sluggy Jabba? gross! or they didn’t make it because I really wanted to make sure I made a wookie cookie. I was tempted to make a Leia cookie to see if I could, but this is a family-friendly place and that is just a little too much cleavage and chains for a PG rated blog.
Thank you Mr. John and Gabe for being such big
nerds fans and knowing all the names of every single character, how to spell it, and why they should be a cookie. Hopefully the birthday boy agrees.
May the force be with you!
P.S. FAQ: Yes, these are hand-painted cookies (with food coloring and a paintbrush)
