Mummy Cookies

These bright and colorful Mummy Cookies are a fun twist on traditional mummies. Fun to decorate, and yummy to eat.


  • 1 package refrigerated chocolate chip cookies, such as Pillsbury Ready To Bake!
  • Neon orange and green food colors
  • Candy eyes
  • 1 container (1 pound) vanilla creamy ready-to-spread frosting


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake cookies as directed on package. Cool completely.

Separate frosting into 2 small bowls; add food colors to make desired neon orange and neon green colors.

Spoon colored frostings into decorating bags fitted with flat basket weave tip #45. Squeeze bag to pipe frosting in crisscross pattern over cookies to look like mummy bandages. Attach candy eyes. Let stand until set, about 20 minutes.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
