    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
