Ghost Cookies

As if Halloween didn't already provide piles of ooey-gooey, sweet, delicious treats I decided to whip up something in the spirit of Halloween.  Whip these up in the evening and you'll have cookies by morning.

Ghost Cookies

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 C granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Prep 2 cookie sheets with parchment and cooking spray.  Preheat oven to 350*

Using an electric mixer, whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

Beat in sugar, vanilla and salt.

Using piping bag and LARGE tip, pipe about 2 tablespoons into a ghost shapes about 1.5" apart.  I didn't have a large tip, so I just used the large coupler.

Place the cookie sheets in the preheated oven, close the door and *turn the oven off*.  Don't open the oven until morning and you'll have delicious perfect ghosts.

Using gel frosting (I used orange) add little dot eyes and a mouth to create that ghosty look.

  Happy Halloween!!  


  1. Yum! And you make them sound so easy - but what's a coupler?

  2. Alicia - a coupler is a 2 piece plastic thing that fits in/on the pastry bag. It's used to hold the decorative tip in place. Costs about $1 for a small one.
