This time of year calls for Gingerbread houses, Sugar cookies in the shape of stockings and snowmen, and a Christmas tree decorated with holiday lights. Many people have a delicious Porg in the oven for Christmas Dinner…I mean Ham, I definitely meant ham…even though a well cooked Porg looks totally Yummy. Come to think of it, I may not be the only one that desires a little Porg on my Christmas table. Disney must have realized the need for tasty Porgs this Christmas because they created a fabulous Star Wars: The Last Jedi Porg Cookie Recipe. Before I start getting emails about how Porg lives matter, let me just say, “No Porgs were injured or killed in the making of this recipe.” 😉
To make these Porg Cookies you will require the Porg Template found on Disney Family.
Note: all cooking and cutting should be done by an adult. However the kids will have a blast decorating them!
The cookie itself is pretty easy to make. The dough is a basic sugar cookie recipe and very delish. The decorations on the other hand are a little more difficult, at least they were for me. Tiny details such as feet, frowns, and wings are not my forte. Most of my Porgs looked like Snowmen, which were recently in a horrific accident. However, they were still fun to make and yummy to eat.

Photo and recipe from Disney Family
- Print out the porg template on cardstock and cut out your preferred size (it should be similar in size to the cookie cutter).
- Preheat oven to 375° F.
- Then, start on the dough. Cream butter and sugar by mixing together.
- Whisk eggs in a separate small bowl until yolk and whites are combined.
- Add whisked eggs, vanilla, and milk into butter and sugar mixture, beating together.
- In a separate bowl, mix together baking powder and flour. Then add it into your wet cookie mix and combine together with a rubber spatula.
- On a floured surface, roll out cookie dough.
- Bend the cookie cutter into the shape of the porg cutout. Then use to cut out the cookie dough.
- Bake on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes. Let cool.
- Now make the royal icing.
- In a mixer, whisk together meringue powder and water until foam starts forming. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix for about 2 minutes for the right consistency. If the mixture is too thick, add more water (1 teaspoon at a time).
- Separate into bowls and add food coloring. Thin the icing with water, until it has reached the desired consistency.
- Add to piping bags. Then, decorate using the template as a reference. To frost the main shape in white, start with a large tip and place frosting in the middle. Then use an offset spatula to spread to the corners. For the more intricate details in orange and gray, use smaller tips. Make the borders and expand to the middle with toothpicks. Then add dark candies for the eyes.
- Store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy the cookies!
