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 …”

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.

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

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.

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

You can whip up some Storm Troopers…

A Dark Lord perhaps.

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

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.

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…

My friends Sam and Sarah bought these and made a whole box for me as a homewarming/highschool graduation gift! they’re so adorable! and there was one yoda cookie that was a little overcooked and looked like a total creeper, it was hilarious.
I love your site so much! I cant stop smiling when I go through everything!

I just wanted you to know… IF you didn’t already know that is, that they came out with a second set of star wars cookies! They are vehicles though and not characters. Who wouldn’t want to nibble on han solo? =D They also added a cute star wars cup cake stencil set you may want to take a look at! Just search for Star Wars on the William Sonoma site. Happy shopping! =D

Yay – looked at the link and they’re still available: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/star-wars-cookie-cutter/?pkey=x|4|1||4|Star%20Wars||0&cm_src=SCH

Just don’t look at the “Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed” section – too many tempting things to buy!

I have these same cookie cutters. Yoda’s ears always burn and snap off. It’s satisfying to eat Darth Vader though.
