Baby Yoda Cookies (+ Cookie Cutters!)

Baby Yoda Cookies (+ Cookie Cutters!)

It’s no secret — I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan! And I love bringing this fandom to life in the form of Star Wars DIYs and Star Wars recipes!

Leading up to the theatrical release of The Rise of Skywalker, I even marathoned the movies and shared a recipe inspired by each film in the Skywalker saga! Admittedly, it was a TON of baking in a short period of time — but it was so much fun and it definitely stretched my baking abilities,. Check out some of my favorite Star Wars recipes (so far!) below.

Since watching The Mandalorian on Disney+, I’ve been obsessed with Baby Yoda — who isn’t?!

When all of the Baby Yoda merchandise was officially announced in December, I pre-ordered my own Baby Yoda and he just arrived in May! Watch my unboxing video and count how many times I say — “isn’t he so cute?” — It’s a little obnoxious, so apologies in advance.

Today I’m keeping my love for The Child going by sharing a new Baby Yoda cookie recipe that’s super SIMPLE! You don’t need to be a royal icing expert to master these cute cookies! Find the recipe below, and check out my Baby Yoda deviled eggs with avocado recipe, too!

Happy Baby Yoda Cookies

What You Need:

  • Sugar cookie dough (here’s a recipe I love to use for sugar cookies)
  • Baby Yoda or Yoda cookie cutter (see options I’ve found above)
  • 2 sticks of salted butter, room temperature
  • 1 lb. of powdered sugar (half of a bag)
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp. milk
  • Food coloring — green, pink, black
  • White pearl sprinkles
  • 2 icing bags
  • 2 icing couplers
  • Icing tips — leaf tip, small round tip

Prepare your favorite sugar cookie dough and color it green with food coloring. Cut your cookies out with a Yoda/Baby Yoda cookie cutter. Need a sugar cookie recipe? Here’s one I often use. Bake according to your recipe and let the cookies cool prior to decorating.

Next prepare your buttercream icing. While cookies aren’t always iced with buttercream, but more commonly royal icing, I chose to use buttercream since I had some extra from a cake I made, but I also like how it gives the cookie more texture. (And it’s also delicious!)

Using a stand or hand mixer, first beat the softened butter (I let my stand mixer go for several minutes until the butter mixture is creamy). Then add the vanilla and a tablespoon or so of milk until blended and smooth. Slowly add your powdered sugar until all of it is incorporated. Next, add an additional tablespoon of milk or so, if needed, until you reach your desired frosting consistency. Taste test to be sure it’s perfect!

First, scoop out half of your icing, color it with pink food coloring, and place it in a prepared icing bag with a leaf icing tip. Set aside.

Color your remaining buttercream black with food coloring, then place it in a prepared icing bag with a small round tip.

Next, add pink to the inside of each of Baby Yoda’s ears.

Next, use your black icing to add a smile (these are happy Baby Yoda cookies!) and two eye outlines.

Fill in both eyes with black icing.

Add a few forehead wrinkles and a small line for the nose.

Lastly, add two white pearl sprinkles for the twinkle in Baby Yoda’s eyes.

How cute are these easy Baby Yoda cookies?!

    These are so cute! I love that people have started making cookie cutters now too. When I made my baby yoda cookies I used the “chopping the head off the angel” trick haha!
