They Got Me

The other day I was doing a little impromptu shopping. I had already spent more than I wanted and I was about to pass the Williams-Sonoma store. I said to myself. “Walk faster. Faster. Don’t look in. You don’t need anything else. Whatever you do…

…don’t stop…

Don’t look in the …”

photo

Dang. They got me.

I really tried not to go in, but how could I be complete without these Star Wars Cookie Cutters. I knew if I left empty handed, I’d wish I had bought them in the off chance someone I know wants Boba Fett cookies one day. So I went in, telling myself the whole time I would just have a peek. I can resist.

IMG_0100

I can resist so well that I only bought two. One for me and one for you. Okay, one for one of you.

IMG_0033

Now, I like to bake to go along with a giveaway if I can, but I knew I wouldn’t have enough time to make and pipe these this weekend and I just couldn’t wait to show you these cutters. Plus, my piping skills might deter you from wanting to try them. Piping royal icing is a skill I need to work on, but the way to go if you’re up for it. They’d still be super cute just like this photo from the back of the box, though.

IMG_0079

The cutters have plungers that make impressions in the sugar cookie dough as you cut shapes.

IMG_0066

You can whip up some Storm Troopers…

IMG_0072

A Dark Lord perhaps.

IMG_0075

Maybe some Boba Fett’s just so you can say the name over and over.

IMG_0073

And you have to make Yoda, of course. Make him you should. And eat him you shall.

But… but wait… where’s Chewbacca and R2-D2? What’s up with that? I want to nibble on a little Wookiee. And maybe a little Harrison Ford.

They need a second edition. Fingers crossed.

IMG_0052

The set comes packaged in a cute box with a recipe for cookies and icing.

Besides the kiddies going gaga for these, I think it would make a great gift for Daddy’s Day. Well, it might make some Daddy’s Day, not all.

Find them at Williams-Sonoma or…

You can enter for a chance to win a Star Wars Cookie Cutter Set here:

• Leave a comment on this post sharing something about Star Wars. Your favorite character? Favorite movie? How many star wars figurines your son has? Or maybe your husband? Or you? Whatever works.

Patty Underwood said...

I remember seeing the very first Star Wars in a theater when I was about 20 – the opening was so hyped that I felt guilty that I didn’t love the movie! But I DID think Harrison Ford was dang cute! The rest of my family adores the series and we occasionally have a looooonnnnng Star Wars marathon day.

My sister had R2-D2 Underoos when we were kids. (Why they had R2-D2 Underoos for girls I can’t explain–wouldn’t Leia have made more sense?) I’m more of a Yoda fan myself.

Han shot first. And the weird little head moving thing that they edited in A New Hope does not work.

The inner geek in me rejoices over the cookie cutters though =)

Our youngest daughter (8) is constantly trying the jedi mind trick on us and HOPING that it will work. For example “You will give me more dessert” (complete with the little hand wavey thing and a crooked eye brow). As long as she keeps trying, I’ll keep laughing.

I didn’t see the Star Wars movies until I was 24 years old, mostly because I was deathly afraid of aliens. But I would say the ewoks are adorable.

Dani said...

I loved the first three movies (the last three of the series), but can not stand the newest three (the first three of the series). My brothers on the other hand…

What a kick they would get out of these. I may need to run in to W S myself!

Though I’m not super crazy about Star Wars, I do know some fanatics. One of my best friends from back in high school managed to talk a movie store employee into giving her the life-sized cardboard cut-out of Darth Vader they had on display in the window. It’s in her room to this day!

My husband is such a huge fan of Star Wars and since I love to bake cookies these cute cookie cutters would be an ideal Father’s Day present. Not to mention we just found out we are expecting our first child…Happy Fathers Day!

Hannah Brantley said...

Return of the jedi is my very favorite movie of all time! When I was little, my cousin and I used to pretend to be princess Leia in the bathtub….in our underwear…because we thought she was so cool in her teensy bikini in the Jaba the Hutt scene. Then my other cousin told our parents of our scandelous ways and made us stop. Haha anyway, I love anything star wars. And when its related to baking?? Be still my heart.

I’m going to have to get these, one way or another! I grew up a huge fan, when I was little I even had some trading cards. I plan on dressing my 2 year old daughter up as Princess Leia, this year!

Adorable! My boys love Star Wars. I grew up loving it too. I think my favorite thing about Star Wars is when my kids and husband have light sabre fights all through the house, it’s great to see my 6’4″ hubby being chased around by our 2, 3 and 4 year old boys all trying to get the bad guy. :)

My Grandson Cooper, My Aunt Pauline and I were in the car. As Cooper rambled on naming many, many Star Wars characters, I stopped him to ask him Paulines name. He stuttered a little, looked embarrassed and admitted he couldn’t remember her name. Maybe she just isn’t exciting like Boba or Yoda…I don’t know.

I have seen all of the Star Wars but I told my husband that I would only watch them if we put them in order…sooo, we watched the more recent ones first and then went for the classics. Good movies, cute cookie cutters!

I was 5ish when my Dad took us to see Empire Strikes Back. I was horrified when they cut open the tauntaun and shoved Luke inside to keep warm. I went to my happy place and fell asleep in the movie theater, sparing myself for the rest of the movie.

While I love star wars now, and my 3 little boys adore it. Its a family legend that I forced myself to sleep during Empire Strikes Back. My family lives to mock. Mockery is a family sport.

Love these cookie cutters! My husband and son are Star Wars obsessed. My son insists on wearing only Star Wars shirts to school and my husband can quote pretty much any line from any of the movies. He loves Star Wars so much that for our daughters first Halloween this year he bought her a Yoda costume lol. I would LOVE, LOVE,LOVE these cookie cutters.

I remember watching the first 3 (episode 4, 5, and 6) with my brother! He was a big fan..still is!! Now, I can watch them with my husband and my boys and it takes me back! My boys are too young for those kinds of action figures but, I’m sure as soon as they can, they’ll have some!!! Oh, and when we played Star Wars as a kid, I was always Princess Leah!

CUTEST.COOKIE.CUTTERS.EVER!

Oh my, those are a must have. I truly hope I win, but if I don’t then I think Williams Sonoma will be getting my business.

Random Star Wars thought? The first that came to mind is that my husband would do just about anything for me to wear a “Princess Leah all chained up to Jabba” costume…(yeah, not gonna happen so maybe the cookies will be a good enough distraction).

OMG! We LOVE Star Wars in our house! We seriously let our kids start watching them when they are 2! (Terrible, I know!) My daughter, who is 5, has been through the Jedi Training Academy (at Disneyland, of course, where else?) 3 times! So she’s officially a Padawan to the 3rd power. (Get that? Power? LOL! I crack myself up!) So, we would totally have fun with those cookie cutters! And may the force be with you! :o)

I haven’t figured out what the plot or point was to Episode One. But my husband and I love the rest of the films. My favorite characters are the Ewoks- small, fuzzy, and they resemble the Downey Bear so they probably smell good too. I wish they were sold in pet stores. JK

Oh those are so SWEET! (oh, I made a pun – lol) My favorite character is Obi Wan. 30 years ago in High School my friends and I gave each other nicknames from the Movies and I was Obi Wan. Who cares if I am female and Obi is male. He is so wise and awesome. Qualities I admire. hahaha

I’m a Star Trek nerd but my husband loves Star Wars. I have pretended to listen to so many rants now about the new ones that I have perfected the wait-for-a-pause-to-agree and exactly which pause requires what response. “yes anakin was too angsty” and “yes making yoda jump about demeans his character” I do love that man of mine

Well I remember going to my first Star Wars movie when I was maybe 6 years old. My husband loves all the movies and our son and our nephews are really enjoying Star Wars now. I was thinking of doing a star wars party this summer when all the boys were together to play. I am building up my cookie collections, and when I saw your post, I told my husband I want those! Best wishes to who ever wins!
