While dutifully practicing your social distancing, we have to get a little creative with activities indoors. Bring your love of Baby Yoda into the kitchen with this simple and creative recipe.
- Yoda cookie cutter (Check out Amazon for some cool Starwars cutters)
- brown sugar dough black icing
- white icing Pink Starburst candies
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 Tablespoon matcha (green tea powder)
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
Step 1: In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, matcha, and salt. Set aside.
Step 2: In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and the sugar. Add the egg and vanilla.
Step 3: Add the flour mixture until combined. When it pulls away from the sides of the bowl, the dough is ready.
Step 4: Wrap the dough in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until you are ready to use.
Step 5: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheets with parchment or silpats.
Step 6: Roll out the dough and use the cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
Step 7: Place the cookies on the prepped cookie sheets. With a knife, cut 1/8-inch off the top of the head to make more flat. Lower the ears to be perpendicular to the head. Take a small ball of dough and add a nose.
Step 8: Cut 1/4-inch strips of brown sugar dough to create the scarf.
Step 9: Bake for 10 minutes, let cool on a wire rack.
Step 10: Unwrap Starburst and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 15 seconds. Step 11: Use kitchen shears to cut triangle shapes. Stretch to fit, then use white icing to place onto the ears.
Step 12: Use a #7 tip and black icing to create the large eyes. With a #5 tip, use white icing to create the pupil.
