Cute dessert should be the key to anyone’s heart. When you put Baby Yoda and cute dessert together, that’s a definite YES for us!
Well, the official Star Wars website just shared a recipe and the cuteness is OVERFLOWING!!
One of our new favorite pairs has got to be the Mandalorian and the Child! Unfortunately, these cookies may just be too cute to eat! Check out how to bring this adorable duo to life with the recipe for The Mandalorian and The Child Hug Cookies.
Note: Interestingly, the cookie-cutter used to make this is part of a set that isn’t being produced anymore (Come on, guys. Really?!). You can find them on eBay or Etsy if you hunt, but in a pinch, a regular gingerbread man cutter will work. Just be sure to poke or pipe on with icing some details to show it’s Mando!
Cookie Dough Ingredients
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Black food gel dye
- Black icing
- Green fondant
- Pink taffy
- Black fondant
- Boba Fett cookie cutter or knife to etch helmet shapes
Step 1: In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Step 2: In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until combined.
Step 3: Add the egg, vanilla, and a small amount of black food gel dye.
Step 4: Slowly add in the dry ingredients just until the dough comes together, and turns gray in color.
Step 5: Split the dough into two and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.
Step 6: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheets with silpats or parchment paper.
Step 7: Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the shapes. Add helmet details with the back of a knife. Transfer the dough onto the prepped baking sheets.
Step 8: Place a piping tip in the center of the cookie. Carefully fold the arms over to grasp the piping tip.
Step 9: Bake for 10 minutes, let cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, carefully slide out the piping tip.
Step 10: Pipe black icing using a #3 tip, to add the visor detail. Let dry.
Step 11: Roll a small ball of green fondant to form the Child’s head. Add icing on the back to secure, and place in the Mando cookie’s arms. Add a tiny piece of fondant for the nose.
Step 12: Pinch two small pieces of green fondant to form long tear drop shapes. Add these to both sides of the ball to form the ears. Secure with icing.
Step 13: Create the same tear drop shape with pink taffy for the ear details.
Step 14: Use black fondant to make two small balls to form the eyes. Place onto the head, securing with icing.
Step 15: Once the fondant and icing is dry, the cookies are ready to serve.
These cookies are a great treat to snack on while watching season two of The Mandalorian, don’t you think? Check back for any new recipes!
