Star Wars Cookies

Truth be told, I cannot wait for this weekend to be over! Not gonna lie...I'm a little Star Wars'd out.

On Wednesday, my mom, Ellie and I made buttercrisp cut-out cookies. I have to admit...they were pretty BA. We used my Grandma Gert's recipe, rolled out the dough and cut out almost six dozen Storm Troopers, Yodas, Darth Vaders and Boba Fetts.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                                                  

Even though they are super adorable as is...I couldn't leave them unfrosted.

So...last night I put myself through sheer torture.

I whipped up a batch of royal icing, divided all of the icing up into six different air tight containers, tinted the icing, and began my five hour adventure.

Oh...that's right. It took me five hours to frost those buggars.

But...it was all a labor of love for the birthday boy.



I have to admit. I'm pretty bad ass. I mean...the cookies turned out pretty amazeballs. Don't ya think?

  2. Thanks so much Kim! I was a little worried that I wouldn't get the icing right and that they would look horrible. My first two attempts were pretty wonky, but I finally got the hang of it and decided to free hand the faces of Yoda and Darth Vader. That worked out so much better than my original attempt. :D
