Okay, Halloween is over a month away, but I gotta be prepared, right?! I recently wrote a post on 5 Minutes for Mom featuring my Spider Crinkle Cookies and well, it looks like I’ve caught the cookie bug!

Sugar cookies always seem to be reserved for the holidays. But why?! I think there’s a special place for sugar cookies on any Halloween sweets table.

I had tons of fun making these Mummy Sugar Cookies. Rather than only using buttercream, I opted to mix it up with different (and super sweet) mediums.

How to Make Mummy Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

  • Your favourite recipe for sugar cookies (aim to bake one dozen circles, about 2 1/2 inches in diameter)
  • 6-7 oz. white fondant
  • Cornstarch, for rolling
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 3-4 tbsp milk
  • Black decorating frosting
  • 24 candy googly eyes

Yields: One dozen mummy sugar cookies

Process

Ensure that your cookies are cool before decorating. Start by prepping your fondant “bandages.” Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.

Lightly dust a clean working surface with cornstarch. Also, add some on your rolling pin.

Roll out your fondant so that it’s about 1/4 of an inch thick. Cut into long strips and set carefully on your lined baking sheet.

Time for the buttercream: using an electric mixer, beat butter, confectioners’ sugar, and milk on medium speed. Gradually increase to high until smooth. Your buttercream is ready once it forms semi-stiff peaks.

*Note: If you find your buttercream too runny, you can add more icing sugar, 1 tbsp at a time. If it’s too thick, add 1 tbsp of milk at a time.

Using an offset spatula, spread buttercream on each cookie.

At the top of your cookie, around where you’d place your mummy’s eyes, spread a small dollop of black decorating icing. Top it with your candy googly eyes.

This is where the fun starts: start spreading your fondant strips on random parts of your cookies. Trim where necessary.
