No holiday party is complete without Baby Yoda sugar cookies. (OK, this may not be a universal truth, but it should be.)

Luckily, this seriously genius baking hack creates the perfect Baby Yoda shape for all your baking needs. All you need to do is chop off an angel’s head.

The hack involves the quintessential angel-shaped sugar cookie cutter that is popular around the holidays. With one simple modification, aka cutting off the angel’s head prior to cooking, you are left with the basic shape of Baby Yoda. After baking and decorating, the results are ridiculously cute.

“When you chop off the head of an angel cookie cutter, it sorta looks like Baby Yoda,” Atakturk commented alongside with the series of photos.

Needless to say, your holiday baking plans just got a whole lot cuter. Sure, you need to decapitate an angel to make it happen, but you get Baby Yoda as a result, so it all evens out.
