Stormtrooper Cookies

There’s nothing more fun than baking with Oscar. True it’s a messy endeavour, and the likelihood of everything turning perfect is rather small BUT it’s fun. 

Oscar’s found a stormtrooper cookie making set when we went grocery shopping (which taught me this valuable lesson : always pay attention to what your toddler can grab while you’re out grocery shopping…). 

We could have used the cookie mix but instead we made our own. We did however use the cookie cutter and the icing provided (and some of our icing too)

Here’s our Stormtrooper Cookie recipe:

What you need:

  • 225g (8oz) butter, softened
  • 110g (4oz) caster sugar
  • 275g (10oz) plain flour

What you do: 

  1. Preheat the oven at 180C (around 375F). 
  2. In a large bowl (or in a food mixer) mix the butter with the sugar and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. 
  3. Sift the flour into the mixture (at this point you can jazz it up by adding cinnamon spices or chocolate chip cookie or anything that takes your fancy). 
  4. Keep mixing until it makes a dough.
  5. Then I spread the dough using a rolling pin/ Oscar used mostly his hands and once it’s about 5mm thick use your cookie cutter and place the cookie shaped S-Trooper slightly apart from each other on a tray (You don’t need to grease or line a tray).    
  6. If you don’t have a stormtrooper cookie cutter, you can make walnut sized balls, which you’ll need to flatten them with the back of a fork (or you might just have Cookie rocks) and if you feel creative you can decorate them (once cooled) to look like the Death Star.
  7. Bake them in the oven for around 15 mins until they are golden brown and slightly firm on top.  
  8. Place the cookies onto a cooling rack and leave them there for around 15 mins. 
  9. Once cool decorate or just serve.
