These Star Wars Wookie Cookies were inspired by the look of the cookies from Solobration but I changed them up quite a bit. The original uses gingerbread dough. Given the time of year, I wasn’t in the mood for gingerbread. Peanut butter cookie sounded like a good alternative. Peanut butter gives Chewbacca the brown fur color. I also thought it would be great tasting with the chocolate frosting. The decorations on my cookies is a bit different as I used vanilla and chocolate frosting and didn’t use the decorating pearls.
By the way, if you would prefer gingerbread, I have a great recipe here.
I added a second strap to Chewy’s bandolier as is shown in the new Star Wars movie, Solo. If you haven’t yet seen the new movie, I highly recommend it. It was fun, full of adventure, touched on a lot of the Han Solo lore we’ve been given in the movies. It was possibly one of the best Star Wars movies. I truly hope they will make a sequel as I’m looking forward to seeing more of Han’s story continued on Tatooine with Jabba.
