First, let me just say that Obi-Wan Kenobi is #1 on the short list of Jedi I’d make-out with (Alec or Ewan). He’s one of my all-time faves. I love his whole story! He trained two Skywalkers, defeated Maul AND Grievous, plus he’s got a glorious beard that has always served him well whenever he needed to ponder something.Sure, maybe he should have finished Anakin off once and for all, but we needed him to (eventually) throw the emperor down that shaft.Bad feelings and happy landings all came together to make him a key figure during the Clone Wars and during the following rebellion against the Empire. Han may have considered him to be an old fossil, but he’ll always be the Jedi master of my heart!
These Dough-Bi-Won Kenobuns are the perfect on-the-go snack for the next time you’re riding a giant feather lizard or chopping off arms at Mos Eisley.
- Tube of Refrigerated biscuits (I used Grands)
- 1 egg, beaten
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Remove the biscuits from the tube and place them on the baking sheet.
3. Using a pair of scissors, cut a beard into the bottom half of each biscuit.
4. Use a toothpick to poke eyes into each biscuit (don’t be afraid to make the eye holes big, they’ll shrink during baking).
5. Using a knife, slice a mouth and hair into each biscuit.
6. Brush the face of each biscuit with beaten egg.
7. Bake for 13 minutes.
8. Enjoy while living life as a crazy old hermit.
