    • Gingerbread “man” cookie cutter

Instructions:

For the cookies:

Cream butter, sugar and eggs for Wookie Cookies

In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and egg until creamy. Add butter and vanilla extract and whisk until well-combined.

Combine dry ingredients

In a separate small bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients into a wet ingredients. Mix until cookie dough forms.

Wrap Dough

Wrap the cookie dough in plastic and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Dust a clean working surface and a rolling pin with flour.

Cut out the wookie cookies

Roll out cookie dough until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out 12 “gingerbread man” shapes. Place gently on lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 6-8 minutes and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.

Note: This cookie dough recipe can make more than 12 cookies, so save the rest by wrapping it in plastic and refrigerating it for up to a week!

To decorate:

Cutting the wookie belt

Roll out black fondant until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Using a paring knife, cut out 12 strips about 4-5 inches long and 1/3 of an inch wide.

Cutting the circle for the Wookie Cookie belt

Roll out grey fondant until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Use the end of Wilton tip #12 to cut out 48 small circles out of the grey fondant.

Line up 4 small circles on the center of each black strip. Feel free to brush some water on the back of each grey circle to secure it on the black fondant.

Making the Wookie Cookie frosting

In a large bowl, mix together butter, confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder and milk on low speed. Gradually increase the mixer’s speed to high and continue beating until ingredients are well-combined. These ingredients make up the chocolate buttercream.

Adding the icing as Wookie fur

Scoop the chocolate buttercream into a piping bag with Wilton tip #233 attached. Frost each cookie starting at the top and creating long “fur strips.” Ensure that the entire cookie is coated with “buttercream fur.”

Adding the belt to the Wookie Cookies

Place one sash on each frosted cookie, trimming where necessary.

Serve and may the force be with you!
