Break out your gingerbread cookie cutter early this year, these little guys are just TOO cute no to.


Roll out your dough between wax paper to avoid using too much flour and drying out the dough.

Place them on a cookie sheet and remember not to overcrowd cookies when baking them….trust me on this.

  8. !Royal Icing Recipe
  9. I piped the eyes on with a #2 tip on the whites of the eyes and a #1 with the black.
  10. I used a #264 tip for the white mummy stripes, alternatively you can use a #5 pinched into an oval if needed.

I piped on royal icing back and forth and a bit diagonal to decorate the mummies.

I piped on eyes onto the cookies.

If you need eyes for other Halloween posts here is my post on royal icing googly eyes.

    Diane, these are beyond adorable! What a great idea to mummify gingerbread men. I don’t think my mummy stripes will look as perfect as yours (I’m the worst when it comes to decorating cookies ‘n cakes, etc) but it’d be fun to try!

      Lorann’s does make a pumpkin extract as well, but I really prefer the emulsion better. Alternatively you could add more pumpkin pie spice and I’m sure you will enjoy the flavor.

      sorry about that, I bake them at 400. If you bake them at 350 they will need a few more minutes. I adjusted the recipe to reflect the temperature. Thanks so much for letting me know I forgot it.
