Update: I am submitting this recipe to the monthly Fandom Foodies link-up! This month is Star Wars themed, hosted by My Main is a Cook. Check it out! #MayTheFork be with you!
I started this blog because I wanted to cook and eat the foods that the characters in my favorite fiction actually ate. When searching for recipes based off my favorite books and movies, I always found tons of recipes or food ideas that were cutesy in name or shape, but that weren’t actually foods that were found in the story. I was always disappointed in this, because I wanted to feel immersed in the story and feel like I was a part of it. Not to say that cutesy things are awful, but it’s just not what I wanted. And it’s not what I wanted this blog to be. That’s why, in general, the recipes you’ll find on this blog are an attempt to recreate actual foods that your favorite characters actually ate…with rare exceptions.
This recipe is one such exception. I have no idea what makes these cookies “wookiee cookies,” other than the fact that the Star Wars Cookbook called them that. BUT, these cookies are too delicious not to share. Plus, it’s just fun to say “wookiee cookies.”
I received the Star Wars Cookbook as a gift years ago (what can I say, my family knows me well), and while most of the recipes are just normal foods with cutesy names, many of the recipes are really good. (And the photos are hilarious, too!) When I tried this recipe from the cookbook, it quickly became one of my favorite cookie recipes. I hope you enjoy it!
Wookiee Cookies – A Star Wars Recipe
Adapted slightly from the Star Wars Cookbook
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- Beat together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until well incorporated.
- Add the egg and vanilla, and beat well.
- Sift the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon over the wet mixture, and mix until just incorporated.

The combination of the milk chocolate and cinnamon in these cookies is fantastic!
