Wookiee Hut Cuisine presents:
Triple Ginger Cookies
by Susu

This is based on a particularly dumb game that C3PO, in his capacity as nanny for the Solo children, created when playing with Leia and Han's kids. Similar to Earth's "Patty cake, Patty cake" combined with "Duck, Duck, Goose," the game describes how to mix and bake delicious, spicy, sweet cookies. Each of the Solo children was a different kind of ginger (candied, fresh and dried powdered), their toys and favorite droids were the other ingredients, and would be tossed into the "bowl" (usually a paddling pool) and then they'd all run around to "mix." C3PO hates this game, but is too polite to say so.
