When it comes to the holidays and decorating cookies, Christmas probably comes to mind for most people, but Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays to bake for.
I love creating little treats to surprise my kids, and these really couldn’t be easier to make.
With a little frosting, the right decorative tip, and some candy, you can easily transform regular old cookies into spooky mummies fit for a Halloween party or lunch.
Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies
To start, you’ll want to make the cookies.
You can make a batch from scratch or buy a premade cookie dough like these Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies.
You’ll also need:
- M&Ms Candies
- Vanilla Frosting (Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Frosting)
- Black Food Coloring (AmeriColor is the absolute best food coloring I’ve ever used, by far!)
- Decorating Bags
- Basket Weave Decorating Cake Tip (Wilton #46)
- In a small bowl combine 5 oz. frosting with 2-3 drops black food coloring.
- Attach basket weave decorating tip to your piping bag and fill with grey icing.
- With a knife, cover half of the top of your cookie with white vanilla icing.
- Affix two M&M candy eyes onto the white frosting.
- Use your piping bag to pipe various lines across the top of the cookie representing the shrouds that the mummy would be wrapped in.
- Repeat until all the cookies are covered.
