Scene from Tatooine - Cookies

This was actually a quick and easy treat for our Star Wars fan club.

1.  Make a double batch of your favorite rolled sugar cookie or snickerdoodle cookie dough.  Roll dough and cut a mix of round and square cookies.  Also cut/shape some odd pieces, see picture.   As pictured, I used about 4 dozen cookies.  Cut small holes from the middle of 2/3rds cookies before you bake them, so that you can stack them on skewers.  Move cookies to baking sheet and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar.  Bake and cool cookies per your recipe.

2.  Take a serving platter and hot glue 3 or 4 bamboo skewers to the base.  I used a clean flower pot saucer for my base.  Also, I did approximately 1 dozen cookies as large rectangles, with 2 hole, and I threaded those on 2 skewers so that I have a very tall stable "canyon wall" to hide the Jawas.  So the pictured dish has 4 stacks of skewered cookies, one round, one square and the bigger cookies on 2 skewers.

3.  Thread the cookies on the skewers, so you have 8-12 cookies per skewer.  (Cut skewer if it is too tall.)  Top the tower with a cookie that doesn't have a hole. Place other cookies around in smaller stacks, and fill in with the small odd-shaped cookies.

4.  Borrow your kids' Hasbro R2-D2 and Jawa figures to complete the scene!
