Recipe of the Month – Wookiee Cookies
Monday was Star Wars Day. (May the Fourth be with You) This inspired me to pull out The Star Wars Cookbook for this month’s recipe. The cookbook is geared toward young Rebels who want to whip up a Star Wars themed meal or dessert. I like cookies to I thought I’d share Wookiee Cookies which basically are chocolate chip cookies.
2 1/4 cups flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 t. ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 t. vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir.
Put butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in another mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat together until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Add in the flour mixture and stir with a spoon until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop rounded tablespoon of dough onto a baking sheet, leaving 1 inch between each scoop. Bake until golden brown about 10 minutes.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
