The heart of these homemade mummy cookies lies in a from-scratch cut-out cookie dough. A harmonious blend of all-purpose flour, baking soda, and baking powder creates a cookie base that is both tender and flavorful.

The pièce de résistance is the royal icing decoration that brings the mummy characters to life. A smooth layer of pristine white icing serves as the backdrop, creating a blank canvas for the intricate detailing. The royal icing, made with powdered sugar, meringue powder, and water, is skillfully piped onto the cookies to emulate the distinctive bandages of a mummy. The irregular lines of icing give the appearance of wrapped cloth, adding a touch of whimsy and creativity to each cookie.
