I've been making these cookies for Halloween since the girls were little. Things are little bit different this year. This year, I'm delivering some to Reagan on campus, because it's just not Halloween without them.


1 cup butter or margarine, softened
¾ cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg
3 all-purpose flour
64 miniature chocolate chips (about 2 teaspoons)
1 cup white vanilla baking chips


In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add flour; beat on low speed until dough forms. Roll dough into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 30 to 45 minutes for easier handling.

Heat oven to 350°F. Roll into little ropes and flatten slightly. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, 1 inch apart. Press 2 chocolate chips, point sides down, in each mummy head for eyes.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until very light golden brown and tops are set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

In small resealable freezer plastic bag, place vanilla chips; seal bag. Microwave on High in 10-15 seconds increments or until softened. Gently squeeze bag until chips are smooth; cut off tiny corner of bag. Squeeze bag to drizzle frosting in a crisscross pattern over cookies to look like mummy bandages. Let stand until set, about 20 minutes.
