So the final task of the birthday weekend was to make something for the 6 year old to take to school. We discussed cupcakes, and muffins, but finally decided on sugar cookies. But of course, we had to turn them into something Star Wars. Apparently my son isn’t the only boy obsessed with Star Wars in his class, because another Mom was there with help! She had put “lightsabers” on her sons cupcakes. Thanks to her, I was able to accomplish Star Wars Sugar Cookies!!
We make these sugar cookies all the time. They are the ones my husband grew up with, and they are a hit wherever I bring them. I made them for my son’s class for their Valentine’s Party. I got requests from the teacher, and the Mom’s that were helping at the party for the recipe. Everyone always guesses what ingredients are in there, and are always surprised when they see the recipe.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter – softened
1 cup sugar
3 Tbls milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the milk, vanilla and egg. Mix in the flour, baking powder and salt. You want to be careful not to over mix, or your cookies will turn out tough.
Check out the final product! Not bad for someone who isn’t all that creative! I am curious to hear how they went over at snack time today.
