Star Wars: The Force Awakens may not be premiering until December, but fans already have their favorite characters. Sure, the little rolling BB-8 is popular but by far one the most anticipated characters to hit the screen is Captain Phasma.
As she dons the shiniest of chrome armor, we can’t wait to see what impressions she’ll make on the Star Wars universe. Until then we’ll have to do with Commander of the First Order in cookie form. Just as chrome, almost as awesome.
– 3 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– pinch of salt
– 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
– 1 cup sugar
– 1 egg
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
– black food gel dye
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, vanilla and one drop of black food gel dye.
Slowly add in the dry ingredients until the dough comes together. The dough will turn gray and form quickly, when it starts to pull away from the bowl, it’s ready.
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 pink dough to about 3/8 inch thick to make sure you can capture all the detail. Dip the cookie cutter into flour and shake off the excess, then press the cookie cutter into the dough.
Transfer onto the prepped baking sheets and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
Once the cookies are cool, spray the cookie with the edible silver spray. Let dry completely.
