I got these cool Star Wars cookie cutters from my sister Marian for Christmas. They represent Boba Fett and a generic Storm Trooper. To make them, I used the 1-2-3 cookie dough recipe from a cookbook called Ratio. You weigh out one part sugar, two parts butter, and three parts flour, mixing the butter and sugar together first. This makes a very basic shortbread cookie, which I varied a bit by adding some vanilla flavoring and an egg yolk. Then I rolled it out and cut out the cookies. Boba Fett looks more like a domed adobe house than like a bounty hunter, but maybe that's just me.
I also played with another Christmas toy, which is a measuring cup attached to a digital scale. Very handy, and very good for aficianados of Ruhlman's ratio system.
