As most of you know today the Blu ray Star Wars box set came out today! i was lucky enough to get it yesterday from amazon i geeked out all day and night on star wars i watched all of the bonus discs. i must say i had goosebumps when i put in A New Hope which is my favourite movie of all time, the sound is so clear and the picture amazing of course! i decided to make these cookies today, excuse the lighting in the photos we haven't had any sun in days its pretty gloomy outside which i love but not for photos. This cookie recipe is from the star wars cookbook and everyone knows i have done many recipes from the cookbook i still haven't made everything yet!

3/ cup butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Put the butter in a bowl. With an electric mixer set on high speed, beat the butter until soft and light in colour.
Gradually add the sugar in a slow,steady stream, and beat until creamy and lemon yellow. Then add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla and stir just until blended.
Put the flour and salt into a sifter and sift them into a small bowl. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating it in with the mixer on low speed until it is fully incorporated. the dough will become very stiff and you may have to knead the last bit of flour by hand.With your hands, pat the dough into a ball and flatten the ball into a thick disk. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
preheat oven to 400 remove dough from the fridge and unwrap. Dust your work surface with flour. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough
Using cookie cutters of any shape you like, cut cookies out of the dough. Carefully transfer the cookies to the baking sheet, leaving a little space around each one.
slip baking sheets into oven and bake until cookies begin to brown, 8 to 10 mins. Transfer the cookies to cooling racks with a spatula and allow them to cool. Sift a little confectioners' sugar over the cookies.
