Bakers Are Chopping The Heads Off Christmas Angels To Make Baby Yoda Cookies

There's nothing that quite says festive cheer like cutting off the head of a cookie angel.

Yet a baking hack that's been gaining traction on Twitter calls for you to do just that.

Instagram user Katy Atakturk came up with the inventive trick, explaining that with the use of an angel shaped cookie cutter -- often sold in supermarkets during the Christmas period -- you can make Baby Yoda cookies.

And with the new movie 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' due to come out on Thursday, we couldn't think of a better time to get baking some Baby Yodas.

Even if you're not a Star Wars fan, they incredibly cute.

"Baking hack: Chop off Angel head for a homemade Baby Yoda cookie cutter," Twitter user @JRMcGrail alongside an image of some very convincing Baby Yoda cookies.

The tweet has since gained almost 150,000 likes and has been retweeted nearly 27,000 times, so it's safe to say it's a hit.

"That’s really clever," replied another commenter.

We don't think we'll be able to look at angel cookies the same way again...

But if you can't bring yourself to chop the head off a helpless Christmas angel cookie, might be suggest a succulent that looks like Yoda instead?

Merry Yoda-mas.
