You must have seen these cute baby Yoda cookies all over social media inspired by the small Mandalorian creature. Even though making these cookies looks hard, it’s actually the opposite.
The Baby Yoda fan Katy Atakturk came up with a brilliant way to make these unique cookie shapes using an angel cookie cutter. You don’t have to guess how she used it to make these adorable Baby Yoda cookies, as she shared her method on Instagram. And, it’s easier than you think.
Here’s everything you need to know to make your own Baby Yoda cookies at home.
How To Make Baby Yoda Cookies
The secret to making the Baby Yoda shape is cutting off the angel heads after using a standard angel cookie cutter. Isn’t it brilliant and fun?
The cookie dough is rolled out to a proper thickness and a regular Christmas angel cookie cutter is used to create the first cut outs. Then, the angel cookies are put into a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Now it’s time for the dramatic part – cutting off the angel heads with a butter knife and smoothing the edges to create a mound.
The next important thing in the creation of these unconventional cookies is freezing them for at least 15 minutes. In this way, the dough cookies will maintain their shape in the oven.
They are baked in the oven for about ten minutes, rotating the tray halfway through so that the cookies are evenly baked on all sides.
In the meantime, you can make a buttercream frosting base for an even better flavor. A thin layer of the frosting base is spread on each cookie after they are cooled out of the oven.
The Royal Icing is the next thing to prepare using water, powdered sugar, and meringue powder. A ¼ cup of the icing is used for each color you plan to use. Each partition is placed in a separate plastic sandwich bag where the desired color is added. You’ll need green, brown, a little bit of black and a bit of white.
The next step is outlining all Baby Yoda cookies which will take you up to 10 minutes. The following step is filling them in with the right icing color which can take longer to set.
Finally, it’s time to focus on the finishing touches by dropping two small dots of the black icing for Yoda’s eyes which should spread slightly, and using a toothpick to add a few tiny white specks on each eye.
Here are all the ingredients you need to make these little bundles of joy for all Baby Yoda fans.
To make these viral Baby Yoda cookies, you need to make sugar cookie dough, roll it out and stamp out shapes using a standard Christmas angel cookie cutter.
The most interesting part is where you cut off the angel’s heads to get Baby Yoda shape. Bake the cookies and fill the top portion with royal icing in the right color. Complete the finishing touches.
