Friendly Ghost Sugar Cookies
While we’re all about the Halloween spooks and scares, these Friendly Ghost Sugar Cookies have real personality. Will your ghost be sneaky, with its face frozen in a smirk as it flies off with the coveted candy corn; spooky, with its mouth set in a precipitous O; or warm and cuddly, with a soft smile sweeter than all that Halloween candy? Luckily, you don’t have to choose just one—you can make an entire collection of sweet, spooky, and sneaky ghosts to suit every Halloween character. They’re entirely customizable. You can omit the candy and make a plain ghost cookie, but these cute-as-can-be ghosts cuddling pieces of candy corn are more unique and charming than your run-of-the-mill ghost.Not only do they look adorable (especially when paired with our Candy Corn Sugar Cookies), but they’re quite simple to make using our Easy Sugar Cookie recipe. Even beginner cookie decorators can accomplish this task. A few tips in executing these cute cookies: Outline the cookies close enough to the edge that the icing will cover the entire cookie, but not too close that the icing will spill over the sides. When flooding, start piping from the outside in, and use a toothpick to shepherd extra icing into any blank gaps. Lastly, be sure the white base layer of your cookies has enough time to dry before piping on the face—this will prevent the colors from bleeding into each other. Happy piping!
