A special post for Star Wars Day (aka) 
May the Fourth Be with You Day!

Via Giphy
A long time ago (in a galaxy not so far away), I served as editorial director for a line of Lucasfilm children's books. As a lifelong Star Wars fan, this was a dream come true. Although I was based in New York, I visited Skywalker Ranch enough times to point out the particulars of Mr. Lucas's stunning, sprawling Victorian Main House, pictured above. (Over the fireplace you'll find the Norman Rockwell, and in that glass case Indiana Jones's leather whip.)

To say I enjoyed my work would be a galactic understatement. I was reading top secret scripts; seeing raw footage in George Lucas's own screening room; and brainstorming tie-in book ideas right there at Skywalker. Even eating in the gorgeous Ranch dining room was a trip (OMG, there's George!). I learned so much in that realm of storytelling magic. I'll never forget it.


Crispy on the outside, CHEWY on the inside.
Out of this world cookies for Star Wars Day
Now that I'm a culinary mystery writer, murder is my business and so is food, which is why I'm sharing an out of this world cookie recipe for Star Wars Day, one that's crispy on the outside and delightfully Chewy on the inside. (Yes, puns are my business, too.)

Chocolate Chip Millennium Falcon and Silver Dollar Chocolate Chip Cookies by Cleo Coyle

A long time ago (in a galaxy not so far away), I served as editorial director for a line of Lucasfilm children's books. As a lifelong Star Wars fan, this was a dream come true. Although I was based in New York, I visited Skywalker Ranch enough times to point out the particulars of Mr. Lucas's stunning Victorian Main House (the Norman Rockwell over the fireplace, the original Indiana Jones whip in the glass case). 



To say I enjoyed my work would be the understatement of the century. I was reading top secret scripts; seeing raw footage in George Lucas's own screening room; and brainstorming ideas right there at Skywalker. Even eating in the gorgeous Ranch dining room was a died-and-gone-to-heaven trip (OMG, there's George!). I learned so much in that realm of storytelling magic. I'll never forget it.



Now that I'm a culinary mystery writer, murder is my business and so is food; thus, I give you the Millennium Falcon Chocolate Chip Cookie along with the recipe to bake your own. Crispy on the outside, these cookies are also delightfully Chewy on the inside (yes, puns are my business, too!). And they truly are out of this world. :)
