Hoth Chocolate, Jedi Juice Pops and Clone Scones are just a few of the recipes in the newly published "Star Wars Cookbook: Wookiee Pies, Clone Scones, and Other Galactic Goodies" (Chronicle, $22.99). The cookbook comes with cookie cutters shaped like Darth Vader, Yoda and R2-D2.
We tried the incredibly simple Yoda Soda, which called for three limes, three tablespoons of sugar, a cup of sparkling water and a scoop of lime sherbet or sorbet. We made two substitutions. Instead of sparkling water, we used seltzer because it was in the house. And we used lemon sorbet, one of the alternatives recommended by authors Robin Davis and Lara Starr. It was very sweet, even for my 8-year-old son's taste buds, but most of the recipes are.
"Star Wars" fanatics will enjoy the photos that accompany each recipe featuring action figures fighting, posing or otherwise pontificating among the prepared breakfasts, beverages, snacks, side, cookies and sweets.
