This is one of the most reliable sugar cookie recipes as the base for this not-so-spooky treat. The cookie dough recipe calls for a few tablespoons of milk to make an extra-tender sugar cookie interior, while vanilla extract and almond extract lend the classic sugar cookie flavor. The face of each cookie is dipped in melted almond bark candy coating to give the cookie a smooth white surface for the mummy wrappings piped onto each cookie. Candy eyeballs are set onto the face of the cookie while the almond bark coating is still wet, ensuring that the eyeballs will not fall off once the almond bark has hardened. Finally, store-bought icing is piped in flat strips across the face of each cookie in an overlapping pattern to give the illusion of mummy wrappings. Easy to make and easy to decorate, these cute mummy cookies will brighten any Halloween party.
