Day 11: Wookie-ookies and Bantha Milk
Santa is the coolest. He brings presents, has a magic sleigh and has hundreds of adorable elves working for him round the clock. So if Santa is the coolest, then it stands to reason that Santa’s favorite movie is probably Star Wars. Am I right? I mean, Star Wars is the best movie ever, it has to be his favorite.
So instead of boring old milk and cookies for the big guy, this year I made him Wookie-ookies and a tall glass of Bantha milk (straight off Aunt Beru’s kitchen table) to wash it down. Check out the recipes below and give em a try. I’m sure Santa has had his fill of gingerbread men and sugar cookies with plain old milk from a cow.
Wookie-ookies (this recipe comes from the Wookie Cookie Cookbook by Robin Davis)
-2 1/4 c. flour
-1 tsp. baking soda
-1 tsp. salt

Stir in both kinds of chocolate chips. Scoop up rounded tablespoons of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake. Take out of oven when the sides turn lightly brown and put on a cooling rack till you serve.
Bantha Milk (I got this recipe from scifi.about.com and it is by Amelia Hill)
-1 c. vanilla soy milk, well chilled

Combine all ingredients in a jar or container with a tight lid. Shake well until fruit punch mix has dissolved completely. Drink will be frothy.
