Welcome to another week where Baby Yoda's galactic domination continues unabated.
The little guy first burst onto the scene during last month's premiere of The Mandalorian on Disney+, and he quickly captured the collective internet's heart. In the weeks since, he's been immortalized as everything from fan art to love songs to a decadent Starbucks "Secret Menu" Frappuccino. He even had a stint as the official Mayor of Flavortown, courtesy of Guy Fieri.
But now, at the height of the holiday party season, he's taken on a new form: cookies.
Yes, Baby Yoda is now getting the cookie treatment—and you needn't be a professional baker to make these treats either. As pointed out by the Instagram account @atakturk—who describes herself as an "amateur cook"—if you remove the head from an angel cookie, the resulting silhouette bears a strong resemblance to everyone's favorite Force-sensitive fuzzball:
