These Porg Cookies Are Almost Too Cute to Eat

Whip up some treats inspired by a galaxy far, far away…

To celebrate the opening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, craft these Porg Cookies with your whole family. They’re so adorable and delicious that they’re sure to go fast. So, we recommend sneaking a few extra for yourself.


Ingredients

COOKIES:

• Porg Template
• Cardstock
• Scissors
• 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, softened
• 1 Cup white sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1 Tsp vanilla extract
• 3 Tbsp milk
• 3 Tsp baking powder
• 2 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
• Circular cookie cutter

ICING:

• 2 Tbsp meringue powder
• 1/4 Cup water (plus more for thinning)
• 4 Cups powdered sugar
• 1 Tsp vanilla extract
• Orange, gray, and white gel food coloring
• Pastry bags and tips
• Offset spatula
• Toothpicks
• Black candies

Helpful Tip
All cutting should be done by an adult.

Directions

1. Print out the porg template on cardstock and cut out your preferred size (it should be similar in size to the cookie cutter).

2. Preheat oven to 375° F.

3. Then, start on the dough. Cream butter and sugar by mixing together.

4. Whisk eggs in a separate small bowl until yolk and whites are combined.
5. Add whisked eggs, vanilla, and milk into butter and sugar mixture, beating together.

6. In a separate bowl, mix together baking powder and flour. Then add it into your wet cookie mix and combine together with a rubber spatula.

7. On a floured surface, roll out cookie dough.

8. Bend the cookie cutter into the shape of the porg cutout. Then use to cut out the cookie dough.


9. Bake on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes. Let cool.

10. Now make the royal icing.

11. In a mixer, whisk together meringue powder and water until foam starts forming. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix for about 2 minutes for the right consistency. If the mixture is too thick, add more water (1 teaspoon at a time).

12. Separate into bowls and add food coloring. Thin the icing with water, until it has reached the desired consistency.

13. Add to piping bags. Then, decorate using the template as a reference. To frost the main shape in white, start with a large tip and place frosting in the middle. Then use an offset spatula to spread to the corners. For the more intricate details in orange and gray, use smaller tips. Make the borders and expand to the middle with toothpicks. Then add dark candies for the eyes.

14. Store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy the cookies!
