E.T. the Extra Terrestrial Cookie Recipe for the Atari 2600

Posted by

It’s strange how a movie that is so beloved can spawn such an… interesting… video game. And it’s unfortunate that while the movie spawned a ton of merchandise, the video game was swept under the rug (or more accurately: buried in a landfill, then encased in concrete like it was a mob hit). There were no E.T. for Atari action figure, no realistic pits, not even square Reese’s Pieces. Leave it to Pop Rewind to take matters into our own hands with a fun recipe for you to try at home so you can finally have more E.T. Atari-based things in your life.

E.T. the Extra Terrestrial Cookies for the Atari 2600

If you didn’t enjoy E.T. for the Atari, you can now at least drown your sorrows in sweet, sweet delicious cookies.

Dammit E.T., stop eating all the Reese’s Pieces! I still need those!

Roll out your green sugar cookie dough on a floured surface. I roll mine out pretty thin and get good results, but be careful because E.T.’s arm (or his dick, I’m not sure) and feet are very fragile. Carefully place cookies on a baking sheet– use parchment paper on a regular pan or just stone bake ware if you’re me. Don’t forget your decorations if you still have some left– a brown Reese’s Piece for E.T.’s eye.

Place cookies in the oven as per the directions on your cookie recipe. These went into a 400 degree oven for about seven minutes, just until they started to get slightly browned.

Once the cookies are finished baking, set them aside to cool. Totally optional: add a bit of red frosting to E.T.’s finger (or dick) so Elliott will beeeee gooooood.

Watch closely as E.T. considers cannibalism.
