Happy Star Wars Day! On May 4th my family likes to do a few fun things throughout the day to celebrate our love of Star Wars. We watch some of the movies, wear our favorite shirts, my daughter likes to dress up as Rey (this is a regular thing though, not just for today), we do some fun projects with the kids like the ones I shared with you in my post Getting Ready for Star Wars Day, and making fun treats like these Wookiee Cookies. These are perfect for Star Wars Day or any day!
Wookiee Cookies are a fun version of oatmeal cookies. Our version is made to be allergy friendly to accommodate the multiple allergies and sensitivities we have in our home. However, if your family doesn’t have any restrictions feel free to use whatever regular products you would typically use.
- 1/2 lb or 2 sticks butter, softened. I use Earth Balance soy free buttery spread.
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar (you can also use brown sugar)
- 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
- 2 eggs, I use duck eggs because of chicken egg allergies
- 1 1/2 cups King Arthur Gluten-Free measure for measure flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 cups certified gluten-free rolled oats
- Heat oven to 350 F.
- Beat together butter and sugars until creamy.
- Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
- Add combined flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
- Stir in oats until well combined.
- Drop by rounded spoonfuls or use a cookie scoop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes until edges are just brown.
- Cool 2-3 minutes on the cookie sheet then remove to cooling rack or plate.
- 2 cups organic powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, Earth Balance works well for this also.
- 3-4 tbsp almond milk, or whatever milk is safe for your family.
- Beat powdered sugar and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.
- Add milk 1 tbsp at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
- Add icing to a piping bag or regular plastic seal bag. If using a plastic seal bag, cut just a tiny bit of a bottom corner off the bag.
- Once the cookies are completely cooled, pipe small dots or lines onto your cookies to give them that fun Wookiee design. Enjoy!
I put any leftover icing in the freezer so that if we want to make cookies or other treats last minute I can just lay it out to defrost and use it up instead of throwing it out. For instance, this Star Wars Day I used up some leftover icing we had from making Christmas cookies!
My daughter absolutely loves baking and claims she will one day compete on the Kids Baking Championship and become a chef. Needless to say, she had fun with this recipe! I hope you do as well. Please let me know what you think!
