Make a good batch of treats based on the Wookiee Padawan's appearance in Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
Clone Force 99 is back, and along with the group's new adventures in Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2 on Disney+, come new friends they encounter along the way. In episode six, the team meets Gungi, who we first saw in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The young Wookiee Padawan makes quite an impression.
These cookies resemble Gungi from his youthful fur to his iconic Brylark lightsaber. Gungi’s familiar tooth, shoulder bandolier, and sash, all made out of icing, come together to complete his look. His energetic moves can be recreated by hanging these snacks off the sides of cups, bowls, Kashyyyk trees, or anywhere an edible Jedi might find themselves while out and about. Clone Force 99 would surely approve of these flavorful Wookiee cookies!

Step 1: In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, ginger, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
Step 2: In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and brown sugar until combined.

Step 5: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheets with silpats or parchment paper.
