Star Wars has had a strong Christmas connection since the release of the Star Wars Holiday Special in 1978. When a new Star Wars film is released, it normally happens in December which is an awesome gift to millions of fans out there.
This recipe is from Buzzfeed and they turned out great! You can find the original here:
3 cups flour
3/4 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup water
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
Here’s how you make these cuties:
Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Once dough begins to form a ball in the center, dust generously with flour. Separate into three sections to make rolling easier. Cover dough with plastic wrap or wax paper and chill for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
Dust a smooth surface with flour, and roll out a section of the dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter, or a knife to slice out your Wookiees.
Wookiees are tall, so you may want to stretch out the head and feet! Place on parchment paper on a baking sheet, and score the cookie’s surface to look like fur.
Bake at 350˚F/180˚C for 10-12 min. Your Wookiees will puff up quickly! Next, with melted chocolate in a piping bag, add the bandolier, eyes and nose.
Now that your Wookiees are cooled and decorated, serve them with a hot drink in a Star Wars mug!
