Star Wars Cookies

For Father’s Day, the boys and I had full intentions of making my husband Star Wars cookies with these cookie presses that we purchased at Williams-Sonoma.  However, we never got around to it (primarily due to the massive heat and my aversion to turning on the oven in said heat) and decided to make them post Father’s Day a few weeks ago. At the advice of the cashier at Williams-Sonoma, we opted to dye our dough, rather than flood the cookies with icing.

Cutting Out Yoda Cookies

I used my ice pack inside cookie board and my metal rolling pin (that my husband gave me for Xmas a few years ago after giving me crap for not making him gingerbread cookies at Christmas time) to ensure that the dough (Mamamamahoney baking secret - I used store bought sugar cookie dough!) stayed cool enough.  To dye the Yoda dough, we used Icing Dye from Wilton (found at AC Moore) in the color Juniper.  I think this color would also work well for the Boba Fett cookie cutter included in this set.

Cutting Out Darth Vader Cookies

We used the same Wilton icing dye in Black for the Darth Vader cookies.  The dough really looked like a deep, dark violet rather than black, but none of my cookie testers (ie the kids and my husband) seemed to care.

As you can see, the dough holds the print of the cookies press quite nicely after baking.  If you are really lazy, you don’t even have to ice them.

 I opted to do minimal icing on the cookies mainly because I’m not too into frosting and icing.  I used the Better Crocker White Cookie Icing that comes in the squeeze tube with the tip already attached and a black cookie/candy icing pen that I purchased at Williams-Sonoma.

Even the professionials decided to do minimal icing on these!

These would make AWESOME birthday party favors, cupcake toppers, birthday treats, Father’s Day gifts, geek birthday gifts, rainy day treats!  The options are endless!!!
