Wookie Cookies

My cute nephew turned 6 on Monday. He’s a Star Wars freak! He has more lightsabers than Luke Skywalker. I wanted to make something in his honor and scoured the Internet for Star Wars themed desserts. I realized pretty quickly that I did not have the patience or ability to make a cake in the shape of Darth Vader’s helmet. Luckily, I found this recipe for Wookie Cookies.

Little did I know there is an entire Star Wars cookbook. You can buy it on Amazon.

I followed the instructions with 2 exceptions:

1. I used white chocolate chips instead of milk-chocolate chips. I love white chocolate and try to add it to recipes as often as possible.

2. Instead of making 36 cookies, I made 18 giant Wookie Cookies.

Chewbaca is kind of a big wookie and I think he would probably prefer a large cookie.

Since I was making large cookies, I baked mine a little longer than the recipe instructed. They turned out great. There is 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon in the recipe…the flavor really comes through. If you aren’t a huge cinnamon fan, I would reduce the amount.

Definitely wookie worthy!

  1. From Billy: I think those cookies look like the best and I want to have them! Thanks for putting my birthday on the internet. Now we are going to play R2-D2 Trouble
