First day of October, I can't believe that I haven't make a post of Halloween cookies or treats until now...
My first Halloween post of this year, will be this delicious
gluten free spooky recipe.
from www.milgrageas.blogspot.com by The Cookie Couture
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Serves: 24 pieces
- 3 egg whites at room temperature
- ⅔ cup of sugar
- ½ cup of confectioner sugar (sifted)
- Pinch of meringue powder
- 2-3 drops of vanilla extract
- Parchment paper
- Edible marker
- Ghost and bone cookie cutter
- 2 Baking sheets
- 16 in pastry bag with tip #2
DirectionsPreheat the oven at 302ºFDraw 12 ghost and 12 bones silhouettes on 2 pieces of parchment paper using an edible marker, you can use a cookie cutter as a template. Line your baking sheets with it.
In a mixer bowl combine all the dry ingredients and add the egg whites.
Start mixing at maximum speed for 5 minutes, then low the speed to minimum speed and add the vanilla and mix for 7 minutes, until firm peaks are form.
Pour the meringue in a pastry bag and make sure to spread
across thinly over the parchment paper where you draw the ghost and the bones previously.
They should look like the ones in the picture below, normally the meringues are big and fluffy, but not this time.
You can put some black sprinkles as the eyes of the ghost. Bake for 30 minutes.You can make some spooky decorations for your dessert table with these meringues, for sure your goblins will be thrill.You can make spooky bone sandwiches like these, you just need whipped cream and some maroschino cherries (just the juice)
I know this picture is very blurry, but I think it has a very spooky effect, don't you think?
Hope you have a lot fun making this recipe as much as I did!
