File this under "what was I thinking"
StarWars cookie cutters from William Sonoma, and made sugar cookies with them. I have to say first of all the cookie cutters are amazing. They work great and how cool these cookies look! No kidding they were easy. I used the recipe for sugar cookies that came in the box, and it was easy to follow and taste great. You will notice that I don't have a picture of the "after" when I iced them. That is because they looked sort of ridiculous! I could have used better equipment, like a pastry bag and some fancy tips, but well, I did not. And you could certainly tell. From a distance they did look vaguely like the characters that they were suppose to be. I would have liked to have some instructions on how to mix the icing for the colors of boba fett, and Yoda. I made due with the pictures on the box, but mine were not going to look that good. Boba Fett turned out looking a lot like he was from the set of Miami Vice, with turquoise and pink, instead of the green/blue and red that they pictured on the box. The deserving dad did like the cookies though, so that is good. What is that saying... "it's the thought that counts". I do like the cookie cutters, and they were totally worth the price. Now I just have to perfect those decorating skills with the royal icing!
