Scary …and not in a good way.

Ghost Cookies
( in case you can’t tell what they are )

Well I tried, I failed but the important part is that I tried. While at the store I had a “Brilliant” idea for ghost cookies. You can see that the idea and the reality didn’t quite match up. I still decided to post the activity hoping to inspire some truly brilliant ideas !

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some sugar cookie dough, candy corn ( although black jelly bellys would have been way better) , parchment paper, white sprinkles.
  2. Shape your cookie dough into ghost shapes. This was my first mistake, I should have used a cookie cutter, but live and learn. If you are going to shape them remember they will spread when they cook ( oops forgot that too!).
  3. Add white or clear sparkly sprinkles.
  4. Add some candy corn for eyes- so here was my next mistake, I should have waited until the cookies were done baking , although the melted candy looks sorta spooky, so a black candy would be cool all melted.
  5. Bake. I had to take the blob like half baked cookies out and shape them with a spatula and although I thought they were ruined at first, they actually looked spooky all wrinkly. So if you are going for cute- don’t use my directions , however I think I achieved a spooky ghost cookie. Wasn’t exactly my intention but they taste great!

    you know what they remind me of, those blobby monster alien things on sesame street. the ones that would go “blub. blub blub. blub blub blub blub” or whatever it was they said……

    either way, cute idea!! we’ll have to try it!

    Yip yip yip yip yip yip uh huh uh huh… (What the aliens say… my daughter loves them and we watch clips of old school Sesame St on youtube…)

    I like them!

  3. Janet says

    I love them – I don’t know what you were going for, but I think they look VERY spooky and fun. I’m going to do them EXACTLY like this for my daughter’s school party.

    I think it looks great! Love that idea. I’m not tempted to eat sugar cookies so they’d be perfect. LOL

    Kimmy –you have me LOL at the yip yip yips from the OLD Sesame Street!

    Allie — I think they are cute! I may have tried a little white frosting on them.

  6. Allie says

    Aww shucks ladies you are all too kind, they were tasty, I say they were because my son and I ate them all . At least that’s my story. I need to go work off these cookies!

    I just clicked on your blog and I am in love at first sight! Very clever, very talented. I love your video’s the most!! I work with daycare kids all day long and you’ve got great ideas! I’m so stalking you!

    Stalk away! I was a director of a childcare center and taught in one as well so I can relate to being surrounded by little ones all day long! It took me a while to get used to the quiet of only one child.

    These are so great and so easy. I’m making them this weekend. I love love love your Oreo Spiders too!

    I never would have known that they didn’t work the way you wanted them too. I think they look fantastic and I can’t wait till Halloween to try these out. Thanks for the great ideas and keep them coming!!!
