I am as tickled as a wild gundark to be part of the Star Wars Chicks community! I will be serving as a recipe writer for our site. I hope to post about once a week, and will be bringing you plenty of ideas to whet your appetite! I might even throw a few craft ideas in the mix - if my mood warrants it - so you never know what you might find!
If you are a member of the Hyperspace blogging community on starwars.com, you might be familiar with me - I have been a regular blogger there for almost three years now, and go by the name of MomOf2YoungPadawan, hence my nickname MO2YP. You can also call me Mamadala :-D
I'll start out with a recipe that is a favorite at my house. It appears in The Star Wars Cookbook: Wookiee Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes by Robin Davis. I'm sure many (if not most) of you have made these at some point, but they remain my #1 Star Wars recipe, as well as a treat highly requested by my two young boys. The uncooked dough is absolutely amazing, but not necessarily recommended to eat because of the raw eggs (but we do it anyway!!) Got Blue Milk?!
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
(NOTE: I will often substitute the types of chips that I use. I've used chopped Hershey Kisses, white chocolate chips, swirled chips (choc/vanilla), mini chips...use your imagination! I haven't tried peanut butter chips yet, but I'm planning on it - if anyone does, tell me how it turns out!)
Preheat oven to 375F
Put the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir with wooden spoon until well mixed. Set aside.
Put the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in another mixing bowl
Using an electric mixer set on high speed, beat together until well-blended and creamy, about 3 minutes.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.
Add the flour mixture and stir or beat until well-blended. Stir in the chips.
Scoop a rounded tablespoonful of the dough and drop onto a baking sheet or baking stone. Leave about 1" between the cookies because they spread as they bake.
**Sometimes after the first batch I end up adding extra flour if the cookies are too thin or runny. I think it depends on what type of chips and how much of them I use!
Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
ENJOY and May the Force Be With You!!
