Sugar cookies with M’n’M eyes and a frosting wrap make up these easy mummy cookies! Kids love the spooky fun and you’ll love how simple they are!
These easy mummy cookies are another one of my traditional Halloween treats that my kids look forward to eating. You’ll need one recipe of my favorite almond sugar cookie dough and one batch of my best buttercream frosting for this yummy treat! My kids love to put the M’n’M “eyes” on the mummies. And frosting these mummies is quick and easy. These also make fun treats to share!

Make a batch of my Favorite Almond Sugar Cookie dough. To color my mummies, I use Avocado shade gel food coloring. I buy my food coloring from a kitchen/cooking store. After your dough is prepared, roll it out and using a gingerbread man cookie cutter, cut out your mummies. Once I place the cut outs on a cookie sheet, I press the legs together and place two mini M’n’M’s on the faces for the eyes. Lightly press the eyes on so they don’t fall off. Bake the sugar cookies according to my recipe and cool the cookies completely.
Line your cookies up on some wax paper in preparation for frosting. Using a #47 frosting tip pipe the mummy wrap onto your cookies with my best buttercream frosting!
