I saw these cookies in a magazine ad and thought they cute and easy to make. They definately were!
These are from the Bettycrocker.com website.
Chocolate Mummy Cookies (or skeleton hand cookies)
1 pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
2 Tbs unsweetened baking cocoa
1/3 butter or margarine, softened
1 container Betty Crocker Rich and Creamy Vanilla Frosting
mini M & M’s or jelly bean halves
Heat oven to 375. In medium bowl, stir together cookie mix and cocoa. Add butter and egg: stir until soft dough forms.
On floured surface, roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with 5″ gingerbread man cutter. On ungreased cookie sheet, place 1 inch apart. Gather dough scraps: reroll until all dough is used.
Bak 7-9 minutes or until cookies are just puffed and tops are dry. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Spoon frosting into resealable plastic bag. cut 1/4 inch hole in 1 bottom corner. Gently squeeze bag to pipe frosting on cookies for bandages. Attach eyes. Store cookies in airtight container.
NOTE: As you can see, since I had a hand cookie cutter, I also made skelton hands. This recipe made 16 hands and 11 mummies! They will be fun to serve to friends and family tomorrow night after trick or treating!
