Pilin' on the Chewy

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Use something that starts with the first letter of your first name. My name starts with a "C" which actually has a ton of possibilities, so I really piled on the Cs!

With the new Star Wars movie coming out, I imagine that many people are catching up on the other movies at home. I thought this would be a cute present for such a cinematic occasion. I made a Coffee Sleeve treat holder featuring Chewbacca, filled with peanut butter cookies. I made the sentiment with the colors chartreuse and cyan.

I had lots of fun previewing the new Stars Wars-inspired images via the great DT projects for the new release Blog Hop at Sassy Studio Designs. I was the lucky Grand Prize Winner, winning all seven new images! I couldn't wait to use their cute Chewbacca image. I colored it with Copics and covered it with 2 colors of Teddybear Flowersoft. The coffee sleeve is inked with black, silver, and copper inks.

Chunky Peanut butter & Chocolate Chewy Cookies
Basically, you make these delicious 3-ingredient Peanut butter Cookies, but with extra-chunky peanut butter. I've made these with smooth peanut butter and egg replacements work well. The only trick is to bake them just so that the edges brown, then let them rest out of the oven on the pan for a few more minutes until you can remove them; they will be soft when you take them out. I usually bake them at 350F for about 10-15 minutes & then leave them out for 10-15 minutes. Easy-peasy!

For the batch pictured, I mixed half of the batter with powdered chocolate to create a two-tone cookie similar to Chewbacca's furry coloring.
