Why We Make Star Wars Eggless Sugar Cookies

As an allergy food family, we’re always on high alert more so when it comes to holidays, parties and get-togethers. You see, Mia, our oldest is seven years old and still severely allergic to an ingredient found in pretty much every yummy pastry or baked good — eggs to be exact. And both our kiddos are allergic to certain tree nuts too!

The hardest part is seeing our kiddo upset over not being able have that pink cupcake all the other kids at her school party are enjoying. I know, it’s not the end of the world and now that she’s reading labels and understands her food allergies, it’s certainly been a bit easier. However, she’s still little and it breaks my heart to see her upset. I mentioned this before on our IG stories but recently she worked super hard at school to win a class prize only to come home in tears as the prize was popsicles which she couldn’t eat. And if you’re wondering, no the school didn’t even bother to let me know about the popsicles. I wish they had mentioned it to me beforehand so that I could have brought her sometimes else to eat. Instead, she literally just sat in her class watching all her classmates eat popsicles. If you’re a mamá with kids that have food allergies, I’m sure you can relate. And please know, you’re not alone. Bigs hugs your way!

Finding The Positives In Every Situation Is Key

On a positive note, the girls and I love baking our own baked goods from scratch now. The truth is, although it’s a bit messy, we love it and it’s just easier and less stressful to take them with us to parties.

Star Wars Eggless Sugar Cookies Recipe

Here’s a recipe we’ve perfected over the years with my mom. She’s seriously the most creative and best baker, I know. I owe my creativity to her for sure. Tune in to see our birthday party blog posts. Her eggless cakes are amazing!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups organic flour (use gluten-free flour for gluten allergies)
  • 1/2 cup organic sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Madagascar bourbon vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp milk of choice
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened

Instructions

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium sized bowl, add flour, baking powder and salt
  3. In a separate bowl, cream room temperature butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla and milk.
  4. Fold in flour mix into creamed butter
  5. Roll dough but make sure it’s not too thin or it will break apart. Tip: I added dashes of flour as I rolled the dough to keep the dough from sticking to rolling pin.
  6. Refrigerate dough until it’s chilled
  7. Add parchment paper to cookie sheet
  8. Remove dough from refrigerator and stamp with cookie cutters
  9. Place on baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes
  10. Remove and place on cookie rack to cool down
  11. Makes 10-12 sugar cookies

 

Side note, if you’re also a huge Star Wars fan, this Disney Star Wars cookie set from w&p is the best. You can also find them at Sur la table. They’re perfect for May the 4th or Star Wars themed parties.

And on that note, May the baking force be with you all!

Abrazos (Hugs),

Gladys

  • 🥗Ok, you guys asked for it and I’m delivering! Fresh off the hand mixer and mixing bowl. Our homemade Orange Poppy Seed Dressing recipe. This is what really gets my kids to eat the kale. That and also because as mentioned, we use dinosaur kale 🦖 😆 Best of all? This salad dressing is the easiest to whip up and I bet you already have most of the ingredients needed in your kitchen pantry. Once you realize how easy it is to make vs buy, I’m hoping you’ll switch to the dark side. I love being able to modify the sugar intake. 😆😉 Ingredients 
1/4 c freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tbs honey
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
1/3 c yogurt of choice - my kids love Simple Truth organic vanilla bean Greek yogurt 
1/4 EVO or avocado oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs poppy seeds

  • When you hear the word summer, what comes to mind? .

I think about warm weather, the beach, pool time, eating outdoors and drinking a delicious glass of rosé. 😋 And if you’ve been following me for awhile you know I love me some good wine and I’m a huge fan of @garyvee So when I heard Gary launched @empathywines I couldn’t wait to try the rosé. And not just saying it because I’m a fan of his but seriously so so good! Go to my stories to check it out. #empathywines

  • This week, I made a promise to myself only this time, I’m choosing not to break it! 
As moms, we always put our kids, significant others, family, friends, work, etc. before us. Amiright? 🙋‍♀️ How many times have you committed and always made the extra effort to show up? Yet when we make a promise to ourselves we give up. That goes for everything not just that “workout” time. I’m talking about your dreams, your goals, aspirations whether it be in life, health, love, mental state whatever it is. Ladies, remember to be good to yourselves too. Don’t be that flaky friend that always leaves you hanging. And don’t get me wrong, I’m learning that keeping my promises I make to myself are possibly the hardest things to show up for. The mind is sooo powerful and loads my head with excuses and mom guilt. But I’m not giving up on myself and I hope you don’t either. We got this! 🙌 Shout out to @msrachelhollis for writing a book that helped me realize this! #motivation💪
  • What's your favorite summer salad to whip up at home?🥗 ¿Cuál es tu ensalada favorita para preparar en casa durante el verano?.

This Orange Poppy Seed Kale Salad is our fav. How do I get my kids to eat it? We use dinosaur kale because its bumpy leaves resembles what dinosaur skin looked like and my girls love dinosaurs. 🦖 😆 Also, I make this super easy salad dressing using ingredients we already have. Homemade salad dressing is way better than store bought as you control what actually goes into it. Total win-win.

  • How was your Mother’s Day weekend? 💐
.

I was so excited to go back to a restaurant my husband and I found back when I was pregnant with Lexi. We had gone on a date night and loved that it gave a historic vibe and that it was all outdoor dining. Surrounded by gorgeous flowers and their outdoor furniture was on point. We kept talking about this place for 3 years (I know, crazy!) but just never actually made the effort to go back. So on Saturday we made the effort. And guess what? .
.
Turns out the family owned business was forced to shut down a year ago to make way for apartments. It was heartbreaking to hear. But then my 7 yr old said “mami, it doesn’t matter where we eat as long as we’re together.” Geez! Who is this kid? 😆 She was so right. So we ate somewhere else which had outdoor seating and then it started pouring rain. We rushed inside the restaurant.🤣 Did you catch my stories? After the storm passed, a beautiful rainbow 🌈 showed up. 😊#familytime #myhappyplace #creatingmemories #misamores
