Active Time:

1 hr.

Total Time:

2 hrs., 15 min.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup butter, at room temp.
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ⅔ cup cherry preserves
  • 32 small candy eyes


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine flour, almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; reserve. On medium speed, beat butter and sugar until combined, 1–2 min. Add egg; beat until blended, 1–2 min. On low, gradually beat in reserved flour mixture until smooth dough forms; shape into 2 disks. Wrap each in plastic wrap; chill until firm, at least 30 min.
  2. On lightly floured surface, roll 1 dough disk out to ⅛ ” thickness. Cut out 16 (3″x1½”) rectangles, rerolling scraps as needed. Spread each rectangle with 2 tsp. preserves; place 2″ apart on baking sheets. Roll out remaining dough to ⅛ ” thickness. Cut out thin strips. Arrange strips over jam to create mummy design as shown. Bake until golden, 12–14 min. Transfer from pans to racks; cool. Decorate with candy eyes.
