I wasn’t joking when I said Star Wars is taking over our Christmas Tree!  Well, at least these wookies are…  if you have a Star Wars fan in the family then these are sure to be a hit.  And honestly, they are beyond easy to make and create!  We’ve even gone so far as to create Baby Yoda Cinnamon Ornaments too!

These are simply our take on traditional apple cinnamon gingerbread men… with a few added extras!  If you’re looking for an edible version of these be sure to check out our Wookie Cookie recipe.

Cinnamon Chewbacca Ornament

We started with a request from Isaiah to create our annual Apple Cinnamon Ornaments.  We often make these and give them out as random acts of kindness throughout the holiday season. 

I was in the midst of baking so when he saw the gingerbread man cookie cutter he thought is would be fun to create a few bigger ornaments.  My mind immediately went to Chewbacca and this cinnamon Chewbacca ornament was born…

Supplies:

1 cup of applesauce
1.5 cups of cinnamon
Bamboo skewer
Bakers twine
Butter Knife
 

Directions:

  • Slowly add the cinnamon to the applesauce until the mixture resembles play dough or sugar cookie dough.
  • Use cinnamon like you would flour when rolling out cookie dough. 
  • Dust your work surface and rolling pin with cinnamon. 
  • Roll out the apple cinnamon dough about 1/4 inch thick. 
  • Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and skewer to poke a hole in each ornament. 
  • Stretch the head and body of the gingerbread man to resemble Chewbacca. 
  • Use a butter knife to score “fur” lines into each ornament.  
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and bake in a 200° oven for 1.5 hours. 
  • When cooled add paint details and bakers twine to hang.
 

Cut and stretch the gingerbread men.

Add “fur” and a hole to the top for hanging.  Bake.

Allow to cool completely.

Add paint details…

Tips: 

Look for cinnamon in the dollar store or bulk section of the grocery store
Too dry?  Add more applesauce
Too wet?  Add more cinnamon
These do not rise or expand and can be placed very close together on the cookie sheet

My friends on Facebook voted and this eyes/nose combo was the winning design.  If you have a mini gingerbread cookie cutter is would be darling to create little Ewoks to go along with all of the Wookies!

These are adorable and fun! What is the longevity of an ornament made out of applesauce & cinnamon? Did you store them with the rest of the decorations for next year?

Hi! In trying to make these adorable ornaments, but my dough is not acting like dough. It’s very crumbly and falling apart ! What do I need to do to help the dough!!! I really want to make these adorable Chewies for my 3rd graders class.
Thanks, Sabrina
