Star Wars is back on television! For those unaware, Star Wars Rebels is a new animated series on Disney XD that tells the story of the Rebellion’s beginnings. The show takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope where we’ll be introduced to a whole new cast of characters.
This will be a day long remembered… with cookies. Watch the premiere episode from the safety of your Rebel Base and bake up some Rebel Alliance cookies in the shape of the original New Hope logo! By rolling out the dough and sprinkling them with sanding sugar before they bake, you get an extra sparkly sweet cookie. Plus, this Rebel Alliance Starbird is perfect for dunking into a cold glass of Blue Milk.

– makes 24 cookies*
– 3 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– pinch of salt
– 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
– 1 cup sugar

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until combined.
Add the egg and the red food gel dye.

Split the dough in two and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill until you are ready to use.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheets with silpats.
Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Spread the red sanding sugar all over the rolled out dough, then use the cutter cut out the cookies. Transfer onto the prepped baking sheet.
