I was a Star Wars kid. I loved the original trilogy and saw every single one of the prequel movies in theaters. If I had to pretend to be a princess – not my favorite game – I was Princess Leia. Now, with Star Wars: The Force Awakens primed to hit theaters soon, it’s once again time to celebrate all things Star Wars, which is where Diamonds for Desserts’s recipe for Chewie Wookiee Cookies comes into play.
These cookies get their name from our favorite Wookiee, Chewbacca, because they’re designed to look like him – or at least a super cute illustration of him by Philip Tseng. But there’s another reason that Diamonds for Desserts dubbed these cookies “chewie.” The cookie dough used is a Diamonds for Desserts classic, and it makes thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies.
After you have your chewy chocolate chip cookies, it’s time to make them look like Chewie! What I really like about the Diamonds for Desserts recipe is that the Chewie decorations aren’t icing: they’re more chocolate, of both the semisweet and white varieties.
The full recipe at Diamonds for Desserts makes the decorating look easy, but I suspect if you’re not used to doing that kind of thing, it might make you as angry as Anakin Skywalker. But don’t turn to the dark side yet! Remember the cookies don’t have to be perfect the first time. You can always make them again, which means more cookies. And that can only be a good thing.
