I cannot tell you how simple these mummy cookies were to make!
(A skull cutter was used for these cookies, but you could use a similar shaped cutter, or a rectangle, a square, or even a circle.)
I didn't have to outline or fill any cookies with royal icing in the traditional way, beyond the small black patch for the base of the eyes (The candy eyes were attached when the icing was wet).
After I let the black dry for about 20 minutes I used some untinted (easy) royal icing, and with a #46 tip, traversed the mummy's head/face, in random directions, until there was good coverage.
The cookies dried overnight (6-8 hours), and I then used a food marker for the facial details.
That's all there was to it!
Let's hear it for Simple and Cute!!!
I couldn't resist. :)
I hope my grandchildren like them as much as I do!
