In case you hadn’t noticed…
Halloween is upon us. And what better way to celebrate the spookiest season of all than with a scary delicious treat… one that’s not too scary and we still want to stick our teeth in.
We’ve got four days to make these cute scarry Peanut Butter & Jelly Mummy Cookies, After that, we’ll have to wait until next year. So it’s go-time!
Let’s start right away with the mummy eyes. We rolled some fondant into little balls and then pressed them into a mini chocolate chip. You could just buy them, stores sell candy eyes just like these.
If you like to change it up or prefer a different filling than the peanut butter & jelly combo, you can add any filling you like to these scary cookies like: Nutella, caramel, jelly by itself, chocolate chips, apple pie filling… the possibilities are endless.
SUGAR COOKIE DOUGH:
6 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Eyes! (you can buy them or make out of white fondant and mini chocolate chips)
Preheat your oven to 350ºF
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar until smooth.
Mix in an egg and vanilla. Add in flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until a dough forms.
Get a large sealable bag and place dough in it and seal it. Inside the bag, press the dough into a thin flat sheet. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to allow the dough to harden a bit.
Take 3/4s of the dough out and roll into a rectangle large enough to make 6, 3inch long rectangular shaped cookie and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Take out the remaining dough and roll flat. Cut dough into small strips.
Top each mummy bottom with peanut butter & jelly (or whatever other filling you like)
Add cookie dough strips to make your mummy come to life. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Bake for 12-16 minutes, or until bottom of cookies are turning golden brown. After baking, add the eyes.
