Grogu Ghost Cookies
Cookie Dough Ingredients:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon matcha powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- White icing
- White fondant
- Pumpkin candies, halved
- Pink icing
- Edible black ink marker
- Grogu ghost template
Step 1: In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, matcha powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Step 2: In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until combined.
Step 3: Stir in 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. Chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.
Step 6: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheets with parchment paper.
Step 7: Roll out the dough to about 1/4-inch thick. Use a template to cut out the shapes. Take 1/2 teaspoon of dough to make small hands. Transfer the dough onto the prepped baking sheets.
Step 8: Bake for 10 minutes, let cool on a wire rack.
Step 9: Roll out 3 tablespoons of fondant to form the ghost sheet. Use icing to place onto the cookie, leaving the ears sticking out.
Step 10: Use the icing to place the half pumpkin into the center of the ghost. Use more icing to place the hands on the pumpkin.
Step 11: Add pink icing for the ears.
Step 12: Use the edible ink to draw in the eyes. Once the icing is dry, the cookies are ready to serve.
Be sure to make enough so that wherever you go, these cookies go.
