I cannot claim the creative genius for this – however, I did change the icing dots to silver cachous or as Phoebe likes to call them ‘silver pearls’. We also had to give some Wookie’s red mouths… which looks like they are wearing lipstick.

My design is definitely not Pinterest worthy – but they have been baked and decorated with love. My husband loves Star Wars so these cookies will be right up his alley.

When it comes to asking my dad what he would like for Father’s Day, I usually get the same response each year: ‘Nothing, I just want to see you and the kids’. A quick call to mum usually ends in a gift of a replacement pair of slippers, shorts or jocks.

This year, I will be baking these Wookie Cookie Gingerbread for Father’s Day. I know it will be a gift that will be appreciated and it’s something the kids can get involved in creating too.

Essentially, you will need a gingerbread cookie cutter and a fork to indent the gingerbread cookies. Any gingerbread recipe will do but I’ve shared my recipe that I use every time I bake gingerbread.

Wookie Cookie Gingerbread Ingredients

  • 125gm softened butter
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of golden syrup
  • 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
  • 2.5 cups of self raising flour

When I shared my gingerbread holly recipe last Christmas, I had a lot of questions on where to purchase a gingerbread cookie cutter.

Try your kitchen crockery stores like Robins Kitchen and Matchbox. Here are some that I’ve found that are available online in various packs. There is the cookie boy, gingerbread stamp set (you can just remove the stamp), a single gingerbread cutter and a set of cookie cutters with the gingerbread cutter included.

Once the gingerbread are cut and placed on the tray, use a fork to score and indent each cookie to make it look like fur.

After they have been baked and have cooled, you can decorate your Wookie’s with one line of cachous or two to make it look like the bandolier Chewie wears in Star Wars.

To give away as gifts, I recycle any trays from my fruit and vegetable purchases. These make great trays to give baked goods away in.
