Star Wars Sugar Cookies Without Buying Another Set of Cookie Cutters.


We (mainly meaning I) wanted a batch of Star Wars themed cookies for today.  What I didn't want, was to have to buy another set of specialty cookie cutters.  It's not so much that I mind buying cookie cutters.  In fact, I'm rather fond of them. But, our cookie cutter drawer is full, and beginning to overflow into a second drawer, and at some point the madness just has to stop.

However, since we already have so many cookie cutters, I reasoned one or two of them would have to do for the job.  And sure enough, with a little bit (a very little bit) of squishing and pinching of the dough to suggest heads other than a bear (or a gingerbread man's if a bear had not been available)...


...and some careful piping (or as careful as can be when piping from a corner snipped sandwich bag full of frosting) following pictures accompany the proper cutters ...


...we turned out a batch of classic, Star Wars themed, chocolate sugar cookies (dough recipe here) good enough to eat (and make my day at the same time - so double bonus). 

Plus, the teens, who helped with the frosting, thought they could probably come up with a better choice of cookie cutters, to get an even better shape to the cookies for frosting.  So, as soon as time allows, I think we've got a Star Wars themed, cookie smack down in the works.  Triple bonus!

Natalie - They were from the same bear cutter - just with the ears pinched out and the cheeks pushed down.

Those are super amazing. I got the ninja cookie cutters, and look forward to trying them at some point.

This is what you are so good at - using your imagination to create a new product out of whatever you have on hand. Really, SO pleased you are back!
