Who doesn’t love a friendly little ghost? These Ghost Meringue Cookies are a super fun Halloween treat. The outside of the meringue ghosts are so light and crisp that they immediately dissolve on the tongue, while their insides are soft like a marshmallow, and so sweet. You should try this easy recipe!
- 4 egg whites
- 200g icing sugar or caster sugar for baking
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of potato flour
Equipment (available at Kitchen Art Store)
- Electric mixer
- Mixing bowl
- Baking tray
- Wilton 1A tip + decoration bags
- Decorating brush set + Wilton food coloring
Egg white with a pinch of salt beat stiff. At the end of whipping add a spoonful of sugar in batches, mixing thoroughly after each spoonful, until all the sugar.
Finally add the lemon juice and a tablespoon of cornstarch and mix thoroughly. Meringue should be very stiff and shiny.
Too quickly add sugar and inaccurate mixing can cause thinning of the meringues.
Lamina of the oven, baking parchment paper, squeeze her meringue, 2cm left distances between sprites.
Bake in a hot air oven at 90°C for about 2 hours. Hell two plates at a time. The oven should be slightly open, because the meringue is more than baked dried. After this time, remove one sprite and check, if it is dry enough.
Allow to cool in oven tilted. Ready spirits freely decorate. This may be a frosting, dissolved chocolate or food markers.
