Wookiee Cookies

24 01 2009

For his birthday last year Isaac received Wookiee Cookies: The Star Wars Cookbook.  It was apparently written by someone who, like me, is both a foodie and a Star Wars geek.  It’s complete with pictures of Star Wars action figures posing with each dish.  I thought this was an awesome birthday present.  Oh wait, it was for Isaac, wasn’t it?

They're called that because they're chewy.

I decided to make the title recipe from the cookbook and Jonathan wanted to help.  The Wookiee Cookies are basically chocolate chip cookies with cinnamon added.  Perhaps Wookiees like cinnamon, I don’t know.  I never could understand Chewbacca.  But the cookies turned out well and they were enjoyed by all.  In fact, they were made so late in the evening that I thought they’d go well with a relaxing cup of decaf.  

I cleaned the table just for this picture

They did.  But, like most things, I got impatient toward the end and the cookies got bigger and got squished together in the oven.

maybe I should just eat these now

Oh well.  I took a page from the cookbook and got out our LEGO Star Wars dudes for a quick photo shoot.

Han shot first you know

your cookies are weak old man

The cookies make for very realistic looking terrain, don’t you think?

That sounds like a really great cookbook for boys. I’m so glad they are making cooking products for boys nowadays.

Oh my gosh, Mark, you are just an overgrown child, aren’t you? They look good, though. Remember all those cookies I sent you in college? I think you should return the favor and send me some……

Choc-cinn cookies?

Sounds interesting. However, I am a purist and even though they are Wookie reccomended, I prob will still stay with adding extra choc only to the cookies!

I had my doubts about the chocolate-chip/cinnamon combination too, but they actually were very good!
