Yoda Oreos

so i finally bought those star wars cookie cutters i saw them last year at Williams-Sonoma. i didn't get them then bc i didn't think i would use them the way your suppose to I'm not into the iced cookies. but these are prefect if only i had some bantha milk (you only get this if you are a star wars fan).
i got the wonderful green tint from green tea powder you can find it in the Asian section at the grocery store. they didn't have it at mine so i ordered a 1oz tin on eBay. i think using green food colouring would make it him to green. i think i will also do the cookies without the filling they taste wonderful by themselves. when i saw this recipe on justJENN recipes i had to do them she did a whole star wars party i love it!

ingredients (cookie):
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 Tablespoon matcha (green tea powder)
2 teaspoons of lemon zest
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
ingredients (filling):
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
how cute is he? i love Yoda!

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, matcha and lemon zest. To me, the lemon just adds a little something, almost undetectable, yet adds so much flavor. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until combined. Add the egg.
Slowly add in the flour until it is incorporated. The dough will form quickly, and when it starts to pull away from the bowl.
 Split the dough into two and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill until you are ready to use.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheets 
Start rolling out the dough.  Roll the dough to about 1/4 inch thick.
Use your cutter to cut out the shapes and transfer onto a baking sheet.Bake for 8-10 minutes
make icing In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter while carefully adding the powdered sugar. Add the vanilla and beat until creamy.
Using a piping bag or a spatula, place the filling on the side of one cookie. Use another cookie to press on top and form your Yoda Oreo.
i bought the star wars plate set at pottery barn kids.

  2. OMG, these are FANTASTIC! So cute! Totally perfect cookies. :)

  3. OMG I totally got Bantha milk. If you really wanted to you could have just put some blue food coloring in your milk. More authentic, me thinks.

  4. yes thats how you do it. but i dont have blue food colouring!

  5. I'm not sure if you or your husband like cheesecake, but I SOOO recommend Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten) Raspberry Cheesecake. The topping is completely optional and the cake is awesome all by itself. The texture is really light and luscious.

  6. we love cheesecake i will have to make that one when he comes home from deployment! thank you!

  7. Where in the world did you get the milk glass? The cookies look amazing! :)

  8. i got the plate cup from pottery barn kids and it comes with a bowl too. i ordered mine online i saw the set at pottery barn kids last yr i'm not sure if they still have it.

  9. Spotted this on Pinterest and just popped by to say "thanks". I bought these cookie cutters as well but haven't used them much but I'm going to make these for my kids.

  10. awesome! i was also having problems not using mine i'm doing another cookie soon with the darth vader!
