  • 8 Tbsp butter softened
  • 2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1 ½ Tbsp heavy cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla

  • With an electric mixer combine butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla and continue to mix until well blended.

  • Roll dough into a log with a diameter of about 1 ½ inches. Wrap with parchment or wax paper and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350
  • Carefully slice the dough into ¼- ½ inch slices and place on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes or until set.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, remove to cooling rack to cool completely.


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer mix butter until light and fluffy. Add in powdered sugar a little at a time mixing between each addition. Add in cream and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
  • Using a piping bag pipe frosting in strips across the cookies creating “mummy wrappings” use a small dot of frosting on each eye sprinkle to secure them to the cookie. Continue until all cookies are decorated.
