Yummy Mummy Cookies


The weather here in Oregon has been really off the past couple of months. It was stinkin’ hot for awhile and then summer kind of disappeared the end of August. I’m not real happy about it. I LOVE the nice weather. Well, let me rephrase that. I love wearing flip flops and shorts. My wardrobe consists of shorts, capris and then super cold weather stuff. Not a lot of in between. But rather than whine about the lack of summer I am going to embrace the Fall. I do love Fall. Well, I love Halloween. I love everything about Halloween – the decorations, the abundance of candy around the house, the trick or treaters. You name it. So we’re going full speed ahead and whooping it up for Halloween as long as we can.

So to start it off we made these super cute (if I do say so myself) and yummy mummy cookies. They are super easy to make and what child wouldn’t think these were cool?!

You will need:

* 1 cup butter, softened

* 3/4 cup sugar

* 2 teaspoons vanilla

* 1 egg
* 3 cup flour

* mini chocolate chips

* white chocolate chips

– In a large bowl beat together the butter, sugar, vanilla and egg until light and fluffy.
– Add flour and mix on low speed until dough forms.

We had a tad bit of a flour mishap with my daughter helping me. But what the heck. I decided a long time ago it was more important to have my kids help me than it was to keep the kitchen clean while doing it.)

– Roll into a ball and cover in plastic wrap.

– Refrigerate for about an hour. It makes it easier to handle.
– Preheat over to 350.
– Divide dough into 8 equal pieces.
– On lightly floured surface, roll each piece into a 14 inch “snake”
– Cut each snake into 4 three inch pieces and 4 one half inch pieces.
– Roll the 4 one half inch pieces into balls (for the heads) and attach to the ends of the 4 three inch pieces (Are you confused? It’s super easy. Make them look like this)
– Put 2 mini chocolate chips in the head for eyes

– Bake 8 – 10 minutes until lightly golden brown.

– immediately remove from cookie sheet onto a cooling rack. Cool completely.

– In a small resealable zip lock freezer bag, place the white chocolate chips (maybe 1/3 of the bag). Seal bag.

– microwave on high for 45 – 60 seconds or until melted.

– Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag and pipe the chocolate onto the cookies so that it looks like mummy wrapping.


– Let stand until set.

And there you have it. Yummy Mummy Cookies! I know it’s not even October yet, but we’re excited!

Happy Halloween!
