    Ghost Cookies
    Yield: 2 dozen

    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1/2 cup shortening
    1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    1 large egg
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    16-ounce can pre-made vanilla frosting
    colored sugars, for decoration
    mini-morsels, for decoration
    candy sprinkles, for decoration
    black or brown decorating frosting, for decoration

    Preheat the oven to 375ºF

    Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Add powdered sugar, egg, and vanilla to butter mixture; beat well. Gradually add flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda, beating well.

    Cover and chill dough 1 hour. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness, and cut with a 4-inch ghost-shaped cutter. Place cookies 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Place a craft stick under each cookie, pressing cookie lightly onto stick.

    Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool cookies on baking sheets 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

    Microwave frosting in a 2-quart glass bowl at HIGH 1 minute or until frosting melts. Spread melted frosting over cookies in batches of 3. (Frosting hardens quickly.) Decorate rapidly with desired toppings. .

    Ghost Meringues
    (makes 12 ghosts)

    3 large egg whites, at room temperature1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) cream of tartar3/4 cup (188 g) one-to-one sugar substitute, such as Louis Sherry One Spoon Sugar Replacement1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) pure vanilla extract24 dried currants

    Preheat oven to 200°F (130°C).

    Line two large, heavy baking sheets with parchment paper.

    Combine egg whites and cream of tartar in a clean, grease-free mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar substitute, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) every 30 seconds until meringue holds very stiff peaks. Beat in vanilla.

    Spoon meringue into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) plain tip or spoon into a gallon-size (1 l-size) heavy plastic food bag, then cut off 1 corner to make a 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) wide opening.

    Pipe meringue onto prepared baking sheets into ghost shapes, about 3 inches (3.75 cm) wide and 5 inches (6.25 cm) high. Space ghosts about 2 inches (2.5 cm) apart. Press 2 currants into each ghost to form the eyes.

    Bake until meringues begin to turn pale gold and are firm to the touch, about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours, switching baking sheet positions half way through the baking time. Turn off oven and leave meringues in closed oven for 2 hours. Cool slightly. When just barely warm, slip each ghost into a plastic sandwich bag and tie tops with pieces of orange and black ribbons

    Most resposible parents will not let their kids have home made treats because of the risk involved… when I was a kid that was the first thing in the garbage.

  • mario h says:

    I think what would be good is if you made homemade halloween cookies in the shape of ghost and pumpkins

  • Melissa B says:

    Popcorn balls

  • Amanda B says:

    Peanut butter FUDGE!! wrap them in lilttle plastic things. trust me the kids love peanut butter….and so do i 🙂

  • BLAZER-HM147 says:

    on a safe point of view…most parents would not allow their kids to eat anything that does not look like store bought..

  • Xena says:

    When I was a kid, we looked forward to this lady who always gave out caramel apples. Some gave out popcorn balls too. Later, people started putting their name and phone number with the homemade treat so people would trust them. However, this day and age, I would toss it no matter what….its just not worth the risk. But, if you are giving these out to peoples kids you know, you can do anything! Have fun!

  • the icecream tender says:

    nothing we throw all home made items away unless we personally know them well. no offense but in todays world you can’t take a chance

  • carmenza r says:

    cakes, goodies anything that has sugar

  • Meg's Dad says:

    Probably none. Most parents I know won’t allow their children to accept or eat items that are home made. I am sure you are an extremely honest and trustworthy person but you are still a stranger to most of the children and their families. I can remember getting home made treats as a child but that was a different time.

  • Connie says:

    I would make home made goodies for family and close friends.
    But now days most parents don’t allow home made treats . because of tampering that a few people have done.

  • Jenna W says:

    It’s not new, but this lady down the street from me when I was little used to make donuts!!
    Yummo!

  • white owl says:

    Save your self the time and effort if you don’t know the kids very well. As a parent I would have to say no to letting the kids eat your treat. That won’t make the kids or me too happy. If the
    kids are from the neighborhood you may want to wrap the treat
    and include your name so mom or dad will at least know where the treats came from.

  • Kathy H says:

    Unfortunately, in today’s world many parents will throw away homemade items. But you should be able to make something special for young neighbor children who know you or relatives.

  • Calli says:

    I am making Carmel Apples! They are easy and yummier! If you take crushed butterfingers and sprinkle it on it is to die for! You can get the Carmel at almost any grocery store and if you buy the bag of Carmel’s they usually come with the sticks for the apples.

  • Melissa C says:

    I won’t let my son have homemade treats.Most parents don’t.Save your baking for Christmas when more people will enjoy it.

  • razbora03 says:

    Forget it unless your doing it for family or friends. Sounds cynical… however, thats the world we live in

  • Glinda says:

    I have to agree with all those who’ve said not to bother – anything that’s not factory-wrapped goes in the garbage. People have a way of ruining things for other people.
