Millennium Falcon Cookie Cake

MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU! It’s that time of year again, and boy does it feel good! Two big disappointments in the Star Wars world for me–one, I missed the annual Star Wars convention (ugh) and two, I don’t have any Star Wars apparel. What?! That doesn’t even make sense. Oh well, at least we have the common sense and decency to celebrate today. How are we going to celebrate? We are going to have a Star Wars movie marathon (no prequels, sorry) and also play Star Wars cards! Yep, it gets nerdy around here–especially when Fit’s brother joins. Lastly, we are baking a Millennium Falcon Cookie Cake. Epic, I know. All it takes is some decent batter and the artistry of Hungry. For this Star Wars recipe, you don’t need any pre-formed molds, just a butter knife!

I have been a huge Star Wars fan my entire life, my brother and parents brought me up to breathe it in like air. So this day is always fun for us. Why not celebrate what you enjoy?

Whole-Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Whew, that’s a title that takes a breath out of you! And it should, really, because it is darn delicious! I love it when I have a reason to bake (even though I don’t always need one). This time it was for a co-worker’s birthday. I had just recovered from the flu, so I didn’t want to leave the house for materials. So after using the thinking cap for a moment or two, I came up with the perfect idea–chocolate chip cookie cake. Perfect for celebration as a cake, but great because I always have ingredients to make cookies. To throw a healthy spin on it, I used whole-wheat flour and not much sugar at all. One of the best parts about this recipe is that it is super simple and easy!
