Wookiee Pies

IMG_0496Today we woke up to icy yards and streets.  As a result, school was closed and we got to spend the day at home and inside, which is not all that bad, especially when you have Star Wars to watch.  We snuggled up on the couch and watched The Empire Strikes Back.  And then we made our new favorite pie, Wookiee Pies. These cookie pies were inspired by Han Solo’s brave and loyal companion and wookiee, Chewbacca.

2 ½ Cup flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

Using an electric mixer, beat together eggs, butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar on medium high speed until creamy.  Add flour mixture and then chocolate chips.

Spoon balls of dough onto non-greased baking sheet (try to make balls same size).  Bake for 10-15 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool completely and then spread icing in middle to make pies.

Makes about 12 pies.
