It’s time for this month’s Fantastical Food Fight, hosted by Sarah at a Fantastical Sharing of Recipes.
This month’s theme is cookies!! Such a great theme for Christmas!
I have made and shared dozens of different recipes for Christmas cookies over the years. I have so many favorites and I was really struggling with what to make that was new this year.
So I decided to a Christmas favorite, gingerbread, and come up with a creative way to decorate them instead.
Since I am a HUGE fan of the new Mandalorian show, so Spud and I thought to only natural to dig out our Boba Fett cookie cutter (yes, I have one, doesn’t everyone?), and use that as the mandalorian (close enough!) And since it’s not gingerbread men without ugly sweaters, Mando here is sporting a sweater featuring the crowd favorite: Baby Yoda!
These cookies are super fun and my favorites on the cookie tray this year!
Mandalorian Gingerbread Men with Baby Yoda Sweaters
Medium consistency white royal icing
Thin consistency green royal icing
Thin consistency red royal icing
Medium consistency black royal icing
White sugar pearls
To decorate these, take cooled Boba Fett gingerbread men and use a medium consistency white royal icing and pipe a t-shirt shape. Immediately, use thin consistency green royal icing to pipe a yoda head shape. Use a toothpick with draw about the ears and make them pointy. Use red to make a hat shape and add a sugar pearl for the puff ball.
Finally, use a medium consistency black icing to add big eyes and to pipe the armor detailing on the mandalorian.
Allow to dry completely before storing.
