Star Wars Day is about to get a whole lot more exciting when Star Wars: The Bad Batch premieres on Disney+! On May the 4th, Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo are all back to take on brand new adventures.
And we’re celebrating the return of the ragtag unit of Clone Force 99 with snacks! This sugary cookie crew is made up of team leader Hunter who has heightened senses, assault specialist Wrecker, Crosshair the sniper, and aptly named tech specialist Tech. Rounding out the team is its latest addition, the cybernetic Echo.

Step 1: In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Step 2: In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Step 3: Stir the egg and vanilla, until just combined.
Step 4: Slowly add in the dry ingredients just until the dough comes together.
Step 5: Split the dough into two and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until you are ready to use.
Step 6: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prep baking sheets with silpats or parchment paper.
Step 7: Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Use the helmet templates to cut out the shapes, then transfer onto the prepped baking sheets.
Step 8: Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
Step 9: In the bowl of an electric mixer, stir together the powdered sugar and the meringue powder. Slowly add the water until the icing is combined. Add a teaspoon of water if necessary, to get the right consistency.
Step 10: Divide the icing into separate bowls, using the food gel to color. You’ll need 1 cup light gray icing, ½ cup dark gray icing, ½ cup black icing, ¼ cup red icing, ¼ cup yellow icing, leaving the rest as white icing.
Step 11: Follow the templates to pipe the icing to create each of the trooper’s unique helmets.
Step 12: Once the icing is dry, lightly spray with edible silver mist for shine.
Make up a batch of these cookies and be sure to share them with the regs, too — we’re all on the same team!
