Aren’t these cookies just the CUTEST!

Chocolate cut out sugar cookies with the added bonus of pumpkin spice gives these cookies great flavor. Cut them into any shape you’d like, using different cookie cutters. These are cut with a gingerbread boy and decorated like mummies… so cute and perfect for Halloween.

I can imagine these guys running around screaming……

I want my MUMMY!!!!! I want my MUMMY!

Proof the gingerbread cookie cutter isn’t just for Christmas time.

I couldn’t resist making these guys into mummies.

Break out your gingerbread cookie cutter early this year, these little guys are just TOO cute to say 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.

You'll need to print these instructions too!
I piped the eyes on with a #2 tip on the whites of the eyes and a #1 with the black.
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.

Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Mummy Cookies @createdbydiane


Looks like it’s time for you to get into the kitchen and try some of these recipes πŸ™‚


chocolate pumpkin mummy cookies @createdbydiane


  1. So cute!! And I’m giggling over “I want my Mummy”. What fun you must have had making and decorating these cookies.

  2. 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!

    1. 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.

  3. These cut outs are so cute – they make me smile!! πŸ™‚ You are so talented and creative, Diane – luv their little eyes!

  4. 5 stars
    Love all of these. These mummy cookies are so yummy! I will be making some of these recipes listed for my upcoming neighborhood halloween get together. The kids will love them.

    1. 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.
