Beat butter, sugar and vanilla in lg. bowl until creamy.

Refrigerate dough 15 - 20 min. or until firm enough to handle.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

To form mummy body, using 1 tbs. dough, roll into 3 1/2 in. carrot shape; place on ungreased cookie sheet. To form head, using 1 tsp. dough, roll into ball the size and shape of a grape; press onto wide end of body. Repeat procedure with remaining dough.

Bake 8 - 9 min. or until set.

Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

Place 1 2/3 cups (10 oz. pkg.) white chips and 1 tbs. shortening in microwave-safe pie plate or shallow bowl. Microwave at high 1 min.; stir until chips are melted.

Coat tops of cookies by placing one cookie at a time on table knife or narrow metal spatula; spoon white chip mixture evenly over cookie to coat. (If mixture begins to thicken, return to microwave for a few seconds). Place coated cookies on wax paper. Melt additional chips with shortening, if needed, for additional coating. As coating begins to set on cookies, using a toothpick, score lines and facial features into coating to resemble mummy.

Place 2 sm. chocolate chips on each cookie for eyes.
