Wookiee Cookies

I won't get into the whole story of why I made Wookiee Cookies, let's just say it was Hallowe'en, and our theme at work this year was Star know, just a regular day at the office.

This is the official Wookiee Cookies recipe from the actual Star Wars Cookbook by Robin Davis.

A couple of comments about these cookies:

1)  a TON of sugar goes into these.  I had my doubts, but I followed the recipe exactly.  1 cup of brown sugar + 1/2 cup of white sugar + 2 cups of chocolate chips = wowzers.

2) If you bake them for 9-10 minutes, the middle stays soft, and the cookie is extra CHEWIE....groan.

Wookie Cookies

Wookiee Cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter (room temp)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Put the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir with the wooden spoon until well mixed. Set aside.

Put the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a bowl and mix until creamy with the wooden spoon. Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.

Add the flour mixture and stir until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Scoop up a rounded tablespoon full of dough and drop onto a baking sheet. Repeat until you have used up all the dough. Be sure to leave about 1 inch between the cookies because they spread as they bake.

 Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Lift the cookies from the baking sheets with a spatula, and place on cooling racks. Let cool completely.                    
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
