My dearly beloved reader, the Cooking Tuesdays are back! That’s right, the wonderful ‘tradition’ of posting a recipe every Tuesday has finally returned! And, as you can see, I’m coming back strong, with apologies and a wonderful, amazing, delicious and geeky recipe for the Star Wars fans in your life (because everyone of us knows at least one Yoda/Darth Vader/ Han Solo obsessed person out there. Or Jabba-obsessed for that matter; no judging ). So, to celebrate the upcoming movie I present you the easy and delicious Wookie cookies! I was thinking about some amazing, stylish Vader brownies or Yoda cupcakes, to be honest, but found them waay to complicated for some of us (aham, me), and because I had no time to buy cookie shapes and you are probably just as busy, we’re going to do a very easy recipe, but tasty and good-looking, nonetheless. ( + they are actually healthy! )
What you need:
- 1½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine, at room temperature
- 2 eggs at room temperature, beaten
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
What to do:
- 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 egg, 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 center of the preheated oven, and bake for about 12 minutes, or until lightly golden brown all over
- The cookies will still be soft to the touch. Judge their readiness by color, not firmness. 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 completely cool decorate the cookies with chocolate frosting and white chocolate pieces to look like Wookies.
