Vader Cracker Dough After Making Imprint

How I made the crackers:

I used this cracker recipe but quartered the recipe. I found it very easy to work with. The key with homemade crackers is to roll out the dough very thin. I did not roll it out as thin as I have in the past while making crackers because I wanted to make sure I got a good imprint. I made a quarter of the recipe for the vehicles. I made a quarter of the recipe for Darth Vader. I added ground black sesame seeds to the dough for Vader. I ground the black sesame seeds in a coffee grinder that I only use for seeds/spices. I carefully cut out the shape, then pushed the dough into the cutter with my fingers to get an imprint. Then, I carefully peeled the dough off of the cutter. I followed these directions for baking except that I used parchment paper.  Star Wars Vehicle Cookie Cutters, Star Wars Heroes & Villains Cookie Cutters

How I made the Yoda cheese ball:

I mixed softened cream cheese, some garlic powder and shredded cheddar cheese. I used the Yoda cookie cutter from this set as a guide for shape and size. I then added green food coloring to softened cream cheese and carefully frosted Yoda with a butter knife. I used a toothpick to add wrinkles. I cut small pieces of cheddar cheese for the eyes and added the pupils with a food safe black marker.
