Wookie Cookie

One day the girls and I were sitting around the computer and for some reason Yoda was on the screen. Maybe I was on pinterest, can’t be sure. Something awful then happened.

My children didn’t know who Yoda was.

It was at that moment I had to reevaluate the way I was raising my children. What kind of parent was I that my kids didn’t know who Yoda was?

I needed to rectify that situation and soon.

We then planned a Star Wars night in which these cookies were the star.

For our dinner we had Han burgers, light sabers (chocolate covered pretzel sticks), vaderaide, and these wookie cookies.

When I was thinking about what a wookie cookie would look like I decided they needed to have some oatmeal. Just felt right to have oatmeal. I went looking through my husbands grandmothers recipe book and found a cookie called, oatmeal shaggies.

Doesn’t that scream, “Make me into a wookie cookie?”

Why yes, yes it does.

And so I did. When food speaks to me, I listen.

The cookie has some of the same characteristics a wookie would I imagine. Hearty, practical, slightly sweet, surprising, and filled with intrigue or maybe I just read way to much into that cookie recipe.
