Hey, remember these? I made them exactly a year ago, but never shared – and now on the eve of Rogue One coming out in theatres (big excitement in this house – it’s like pre-Christmas) it seems timely again. Also – these are far more interesting than a straight-up gingerbread dude, aren’t they? You could, of course, use any rolled gingerbread cookie formula and squish them with the back of a fork to make them look like shaggy wookies – extra Chewie.
I used Fruit Roll-ups for the bandolier – if you lay them on while the cookie is warm, they’ll sort of shrink wrap to the cookie. Mini chocolate chips for the eyes, and bits of coconut for a subtle mouth. Or let the kids (and husband) rummage through the cupboards and come up with their own wookie faces.
