How to make it

  • On a lightly floured cutting board, roll out one sheet of the puff pastry until it's half of its thickness and about double in size.
  • Using a pizza wheel or pastry cutter, slice the dough into 1/2 inch wide strips
  • Using your finger or a pastry brush, lightly wet one side of each strip with ice water (this will help the pasty strips stick to each other as you roll and bake).
  • With the wet side of the dough facing out, wrap a strip of pastry around each sausage in a candy cane pattern. As you get near the top of the sausage, leave a gap in the pastry pattern to make room for the mummy's eyes. If a single pastry strip isn't long enough, just continue with one of the other strips.
  • Repeat steps above until you've made all eight mummies.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place the mummies with their faces upward on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Leave 1 inch of space between each mummy.
  • Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the mummy's bandages are golden brown.
  • Remove mummies from the oven and allow them to cool for about 3 minutes.
  • To make mummy eyes, dip the tip of a knife or the end of a chopstick into a dab of mustard and carefully dollop tiny eyes in the space you reserved for the face. If you're very gentle and careful, you could also try adding a nose or a mouth.
  • These mummies are ghoulishly good on their own or terrifyingly terrific as a side dish. If made as a Halloween party favor, consider serving with additional yellow mustard or a honey mustard sauce for dipping.
