These Star Wars-inspired Tusken Raider Cookies are made out of easy vanilla madeleine cookies and creamy peanut butter frosting.  Cute chocolate chip eyes and a chocolate mouth make these guys a little more adorable and a lot less menacing! Star-Wars-Tusken-Raiders-Cookies By far, my favorite Star Wars characters are those vicious creatures known as the Tatooine Sand People. Some may call them creepy, with their vacant eyes, weird ventilating mouths, and tubes protruding from their faces, not to mention their wild battle cry. You know, the one you heard when that jerk URoRRuR’R’R attacks Luke. (That wasn’t a typo. That’s actually his name. Lucas, you wonderful strange man you.) Star-Wars-Tusken-Raider-Cookies-4 I got the idea for these Star Wars Tusken Raider Cookies from the Mummy Madeleines I made back in October. It’s the same simple vanilla madeleine recipe, but with peanut butter frosting. If you don’t want to bake the madeleines, an even easier option is to buy some Milano cookies, since they have the same shape. Using a petal piping tip, I created the bandages for their faces. Their mouths are just piped with melted chocolate. I did those free-hand on some parchment paper instead of piping it straight on the cookie. I used slivered almonds for the spikes and tubes.
