When I was a little kid, I was very much into Star Wars, and I owned a few Star Wars activity books that had comics, games, and stories. One of the books included a recipe for corn flake-based cookies called Skywalker Scrunchies. Another had a recipe for Chewbacca's Chewies, which were made with caramel.
Using the recipes, my mom made a batch of each. I remember thinking it was a miracle that she was able to just up and bake these cookies from recipes in a Star Wars book.
The cookies must have been good, because I remembered them after all these years.
Last week at work, my friend Derya, who is an excellent baker, was asking around for good cookie recipe ideas. Skywalker Scrunchies and Chewbacca's Chewies just popped into my head. We found the recipes online, and wouldn't you know, the next morning Derya brought in one container of Skywalker Scrunchies and another of Chewbacca's Chewies. They were fantastic, and a trip back thirty years in time.
In case you're wondering, I prefer Skywalker Scrunchies to Chewbacca's Chewies. They're both good, but Scrunchies are better.
