If you’re like the rest of us, you’re binge-watching The Mandalorian and fawning over every single scene that includes “Baby Yoda” (FYI, he’s not actually Yoda, and his species has no name, but he’s officially called ‘The Baby” and he is officially adorable)—while eating Baby Yoda cookies.
Between our eternal love for the actual Yoda and the soul-crushing cuteness of this tiny baby version, it’s safe to say we’re kind of obsessed with him. From fan cams to merch, Baby Yoda is a symbol of not just good, but cuteness.
Because it’s the holiday season, people want to take their love for Baby Yoda and bring it into the kitchen. And that’s just what they’re doing with these Baby Yoda cookies.
A Seattle baker posted a Baby Yoda cookie-cutter hack to Imgur and it blew up.

Here’s the deal: Use an angel cookie cutter to make Baby Yoda simply by cutting off the head of the angel! We know, mind-blowing (and sacrilegious!). The Imgur user then decorated the Baby Yoda in brown frosting (to mimic Baby Yoda’s adorable little dressing gown) and green frosting (for his adorable little head).
Of course, the Internet is clamoring to try the genius hack.

If you want to try it out at home, the original Imgur genius provided some tips to The New York Post:
You’ll want to find a standard angel cookie cutter (in the shape of a triangle with a wing on either side), use sugar-cookie dough (since it doesn’t rise) and employ royal icing. The piping is apparently way harder than it looks — but hey, we’ve all binged Great British Baking Show, right?
May the force be with you!
