Star Wars fans and foodies alike can now add a new recipe to their culinary repertoire: the yellow travel biscuit recipe. Recently released on the official Star Wars website, this recipe is inspired by the yellow biscuits seen in the Star Wars movies, most notably aboard the Millennium Falcon.
For those unfamiliar with the yellow biscuits, they are a small but iconic detail of the Star Wars universe. They first appeared in the original Star Wars film (later retitled Episode IV: A New Hope), during the scene in which Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first board the Millennium Falcon. As they explore the ship, Luke picks up a yellow biscuit from a tray in the Falcon’s galley and takes a bite.
The biscuits have since become a beloved part of Star Wars lore, with fans wondering for decades what they might taste like. Now, with the release of the official recipe, fans can finally find out for themselves.
The recipe itself is relatively simple, with just a handful of ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, butter, milk, and yellow food coloring. The instructions are easy to follow, and the end result is a batch of small, golden-yellow biscuits that look just like the ones in the movies.
But what do they taste like? According to Star Wars writer and recipe creator Kristin Baver, the biscuits are “flaky, buttery, and just a little bit sweet.” They’re perfect for snacking on while traveling through the galaxy, or for enjoying with a cup of tea or coffee here on Earth.
Of course, the yellow travel biscuits are just one example of the many ways that food and drink have become intertwined with the Star Wars universe. From blue milk to Bantha burgers, Star Wars has long been known for its imaginative and sometimes bizarre culinary creations.
But there’s something special about the yellow biscuits. Perhaps it’s their simplicity, or the fact that they’ve remained a small but beloved detail of the Star Wars universe for over 40 years. Whatever the reason, the release of this official recipe is sure to delight Star Wars fans around the world.
In a time when many of us are still stuck at home due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, cooking and baking have become popular pastimes for people of all ages. And what better way to add a bit of intergalactic flair to your kitchen than by whipping up a batch of yellow travel biscuits? Whether you’re a die-hard Star Wars fan or simply someone who enjoys trying out new recipes, this one is definitely worth a try. May the Force be with you in the kitchen!
