Callye Alvarado was disappointed with Star Wars cookie cutter sets at Williams-Sonoma (4 of the cutters are currently selling for $20 and $10, review of them available at Geektress). She then figured out how to make Star Wars cookies using eight common Halloween and Christmas themed cookie cutters many people already have in their kitchen (or in the trunk of their car, if that’s where they prefer to store their cookie cutters. We don’t judge.)
Pictures of the cookies and how she made them are after the jump, and, although Han Solo is sadly missing, she did an awesome job. Whether or not you can replicate her work hinges on if you’re any good at working fondant and icing a cookie, of course. We’ve read on many bathroom walls that you’re good at icing a cookie, just FYI. And if you don’t have these cookie cutters already, just ask your mom. I did.
I’m not sure why this so suddenly turned confrontational. It was supposed to be a nice post about cookies.

Here are the eight common, cheap cookie cutters Alvarado used. Read on to see how she did it.
The Halloween “spider” cookie cutter was used to make Princess Leia and Yoda.
The Santa Clause cookie cutter was used to make Anakin and Chewbacca.
The Halloween skull-shaped cookie cutter was used to make Jabba, C-3PO, an Ewok, a Stormtrooper, and Emperor Palpatine. She’s also used it before to make Darth Maul.
The Halloween “tombstone” cookie cutter was used to make Boba Fett and R2-D2.
The Halloween “candy corn” cookie cutter was used to make an Imperial Cruiser. The candy-shaped cutter made an Imperial Fighter. The Christmas bell made Darth Vader’s mask, and the Christmas tree ornament cutter made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.
And here’s another picture of the finished cookies (click for hugeness). I’m jealous of her icing skills.
