Chef's Note

This is a geeky favorite! For easier cuts, you can buy triforce (along with a lot more geeky cookie cutters) here.


Making the Triforce Sugar Cookies

You will need:

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1.5 cups butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Cream butter and sugar, then mix in remaining ingredients.
  2. Chill dough for at least one hour.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Roll out dough and use cookie cutter. Alternatively, cut into triangles 1/2 of an inch thick. Attach three triangles together into a triforce shape, and repeat.
  5. Place each triforce on an ungreased cookie sheet, 1 inch apart.
  6. Bake about 7-8 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool, then frost with Golden Power Icing (optional).

Making the Golden Power Icing

You will need:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon yellow gel or paste food color


  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Until icing is spreadable, add a few more drops of milk.
