I’m only a little surprised that so many friends are already starting to share I-can’t-wait-for-Halloween posts online, since, well, those are my friends! I don’t think it’s ever out of season to dress your baked goods up as ghosts, since after all, there’s not just one time of year that you love ghosts! (or get scared alone in the house at night and think that every sound is a ghost)
When I saw some really friendly-looking ghost cookies (who I wouldn’t mind meeting alone at night, I think!) on Pinterest, I was disappointed to find out that the recipe page from makemecake.me is no longer available, but it does look super fun and easy. If it weren’t for this heat (or if I had proper air conditioning), I would get out a simple sugar cookie recipe, or better yet, ginger snap! Then, I would find a ghost mold or cut them myself with a knife, make a bowl of white icing and a tiny amount with black food coloring, and decorate some happy little ghosts. Snacking on homemade cookies is never dull, but I think it would really make my day to see these smily faces!
