Ghost cookies

Halloween, the chance to dress up, act silly, decorate the house and the garden, watch even more scary movies than usually and eat as many treats as possible. One of the things I love the most about Halloween (besides dressing up) is getting to make all the Halloween treats. So this year for Halloween I've decided to make cute little ghost cookies. 


Method:
Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Cream together butter and sugar. 

In a separate bowl combine the salt, 
baking soda, flour and baking powder.

Add remaining wet ingredients: 
eggs, sour cream and vanilla.
Slowly mix the wet and dry ingredients until combined. 
I added (roughly)  an extra cup of flour, 
because the dough was quite sticky.

Bag the dough and allow it to chill in the fridge for at least an hour.

Use your cookie cutters to make your ghost shapes.

Once you're done cutting out all the ghosts, 
bake them in the oven for 8-10 minutes.  

Royal icing

Ingredients
1 egg white
250g icing sugar
Food colouring of choice

Method
1. Place egg white in a bowl and beat with electric beater until soft peaks form.
2. Gradually add icing sugar and beat until soft peaks form once again.
3. Divide icing into bowls and add food colouring.
4. Now go wild with the decorating. 

Decorate your ghost cookies with the icing and give them eyes. 
I made mine little one eyed ghosts. 

What treats do you have planned for Halloween?
