Star Wars Wookiee Cookies
Recipe from A Few Shortcuts
- 1 1/ cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine, at room temperature
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
- In a large bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients; flour, sugars, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and oats.
- Add the butter, beaten eggs, and vanilla. Stir until the dough is combined.
- Chill the dough. You can either chill the entire bowl in the fridge for atleast an hour or if you are short on time. Drop the cookie dough by rounded tablespoon on the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Place the baking sheets in the freezer until firm, about 10 - 15 minutes.
- Once chilled, place the baking sheet in the centre of the preheated oven, and bake for 12 minutes, or until lightly golden brown all over.
- The cookies will still be soft to touch. Judge their readiness by colour, not firmess. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet until firm – about 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once cooled, decorate the cookies with chocolate frosting and white chocolate piece to look like Wookiees.
Princess Leia Truffles
Recipe from The Cookie Rookie
- 30 Oreo cookies, regular
- 4 ounces low fat cream cheese cold
- 6 ounces white chocolate
- 5 ounces dark or milk chocolate
- Premade chocolate icing
- 32 Rolos
- Edible markers to make your eyes and lips
- Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside.
- In a food processor or strong blender, pulse Oreos until they're finely chopped. Add cream cheese and pulse until the entire mixture is creamed together.
- Place mixture in the fridge for 10-20 minutes or until it is a bit firmer and cold.
- Roll truffle mixture into balls and place on a baking sheet.
- Place truffles in the fridge for 20 minutes until firm. After removing from fridge, you can re-roll them to make them more the shape you want if they have depressed at all.
- Heat your white chocolate in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Be careful not to burn the chocolate.
- Dip each truffle into the white chocolate fully and then place on the cookie sheet again. Place in the fridge for another 20 minutes to set the chocolate.
- Heat the milk or dark chocolate in the microwave the same way as before, stirring in between and being careful not to burn.
- Dip each side of each truffle into the chocolate, making the "hair line". It if works better you can use a fork for this part, dipping each side and then placing the truffle back on the wax paper.
- Again, let the truffles rest in the fridge for 20 minutes to set the chocolate.
- Take each truffle and place a bit of icing on each side, where you want Leia's "hair buns" to go. Attach a Rolo to each side and place back on the baking paper.
- Again, allow to sit in the fridge to set the icing.
- Using edible markers, draw a face on each truffle.
