Darth Vader Lightsaber Cookies


It seems like a lot of Disney recipes are geared towards girls, so I thought I’d find something that’s fun for boys to help make too. Being a mom of two boys, it’s not always easy to find activities to entertain them in the evenings or the weekend, but this might help. Here’s a fun Star Wars cookie recipe for the Star Wars fans in your house, courtesy of Disney Family!

What You’ll Need

Pre-made sugar cookie dough

Red, black, white cookie icing



Bowl, medium

Rolling pin

Cookie sheet

Helpful Tip
Cutting and baking should be done by an adult.

How To Make It

1 Put the sugar cookie dough in the freezer for at least 1-2 hours before you’re ready to make the cookies. This will get the dough nice and cold and will make it easier to roll out later.
2 Prep a cutting board with some flour; this will help the dough from sticking. Take the dough out of the freezer and set a side in a bowl. Put flour on your hands to help the dough from sticking to your fingers.
3 Put the dough on the cutting board and start to roll it out with a rolling pin. Try and roll it out so the dough is about 1/4 of an inch thick.
4 Using a knife cut oval, lighsaber like shapes out of the dough. Just remember that pre-made cookie dough usually expands quite a bit so try and make them a bit on the thinner side.
5 Place the lightsaber cookies on a cookie sheet and bake according to the package directions.
6 When they’re done baking, set them aside to cool.
7 In the meantime, heat the cookie icing according to the package directions.
8 Once the cookies are cooled and the icing is heated, start to draw on your lightsabers (as shown in the main image).
9 For the lightsaber buttons, you can use white cookie icing or you can add food coloring to the icing and make it grey before you draw the buttons on..
