Wookiee Cookies

My sister Cheryl sent me this recipe a while back, and I finally remembered to give it a try recently. It comes from the Star Wars Cookbook, which can be found in one of the dustier corners of the Star Wars merchandise galaxy (right next to Christmas in the Stars). These may look suspiciously like ordinary chocolate chip cookies, but the touch of cinnamon gives them that special Wookiee goodness. Believe me when I tell you they are pretty much the best thing since C3PO's.

• 1 cup butter, room temperature
• 1 cup packed brown sugar
• 1/2 cup granulated sugar
• 2 large eggs
• 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
• 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 tsp ground cinnamon
• 2 cups chocolate chips
• 1 pinch genuine Wookiee fur (optional)

Preheat oven to 375. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, then dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Once baked, it is up to you to decide the best use for your cookies, whether it be using them as bait for an elaborate net trap in the forest, or as the stakes for your favorite holographic chess game. Or, if all you want is to secretly eat the entire batch while you are supposed to be fixing the Millenium Falcon's hyperdrive, that's okay too.

Some of the other recipes that I am told can be found in this cookbook of wonders: Princess Leia Danish Dos, Yoda Soda, Boba Fett-ucine, and Jabba Jiggle (doesn't that sound delicious). Recipes I hope will be included in a future volume: Lan-dough, Tarkin's Grand Moff-ins, Ackbar Eye Salad...anyone else have any suggestions?

{Time to lay off the sweets Princess, you are starting to look a little mannish.}
