Happy Birthday with Wookiee Cookies & Win Earth Balance Soy Free!


K-Man turned 9 this weekend.  On Friday night we had a sleepover party with five of his friends… it went remarkably well… I think we learned from our experience last month with K3’s sleepover which had 12 little girls sleeping in our house.

On Sunday, the official birthday, we asked K-Man what he wanted to do… he said “Dog Park” and “Bake Cookies”.  So, in the late afternoon we busted out his new cookbook “Wookiee Cookies And Other Galactic Recipes” which his sisters had gifted him.

And here is the result…


The Recipe-

Wookiee Cookies adapted from Wookiee Cookies and other Galactic Recipes:

2 3/4 cups gluten free flour blend (if using wheat flour skip the zanthan gum)

3 tsp zanthan gum

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup Earth Balance butter- room temperature

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 lg eggs (or appropriate egg replacer/flax gel)

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1 bag enjoy life chocolate chips (original recipe calls for 1 cup milk and 1 cup dark choc. chips)

Preheat to 375 degrees F.

Mix dry ingredients, set aside.

In bowl of stand mixer, combine butter and sugars.  Blend until creamy.  Add vanilla and eggs.  Blend well.

Slowly add dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

Add chips, mix gently.

Scoop onto insulated baking sheets (rounded teaspoon full).

Bake for 10-12 minutes (watch closely… each sheet took a different time).

Allow to cool on sheet for 2-3 minutes and then lift onto cooling rack.

Makes about 3 dozen.

Speaking of Earth Balance Butter… they have a new SOY FREE spread… and I have coupons for a FREE TUB.  Leave a comment saying you’d like to be entered to win a coupon.  I will randomly select and email for mailing information.  US only please!

    Happy Birthday K-Man! Wookie cookies yum! Let him know that I was chosen to play Princess Leah in the 5th grade play. I sure looked sexy with those side buns in my hair. Not.

  2. Amanda says:

    I’m newer to reading here but I am assuming the cookies are GF? If they are I love the color of them. I still have a problem (in my head) with light colored GF baked goods.

    Anywho, I think we’ll be trying them soon.

    Wow I love Star Wars. I will have to give this cookie a try. Thanks for the contest entry too.

  4. Kristin says:

    My family loves Earth Balance and would certainly enjoy trying their new type. Thanks for the chance.

  5. Kaitlyn says:

    Thanks for the contest. I would enjoy trying this.

  6. Amanda- to get GF cookies to brown up more, bake them longer on air insulated sheets. We’ve also had good luck using Pampered Chef Baking Stones… but you need new ones that are GF only…. they are porous and could very easily contaminate your food.

    I check our cookies every minute or so as they are reaching the cooking time… then I just keep baking until they are brown enough for me. These ones we almost overbaked because I forgot about them… but they tasted delicious!
