Steps to follow to make this recipe
1. To make decorated ghost cookies for your Halloween party you can make your own cookies by following this simple Butter Cookie Recipe.
If you decide to make them and you have a kit of Halloween cookie molds, you probably already have the ghost mold, but if you don’t have a mold like this, you can make it by reusing others you have. For example, if you have a cookie-cutter shaped like a doll, cutting off the arms and legs will make a perfect Halloween ghost figure. And if you want to make it even more eye-catching, you can cut the skirt of the ghost with a knife making waves, or mark them with a wavy mold. If you don’t have one and you’re wondering how to make Halloween cookies without molds, you’ll have to take an image as an idea and knead and shape it with your hands directly. You can make a shape similar to these pictures or make ghosts with glue or even make a chain with a ball attached at the end – it’s time to get creative and make these ghosts in the shape you like best!
2. Once you have the ghost cookie, you can start decorating it! Spread the white fondant dough, cut it in the same shape as the cookie and place it on top of the cookie. To paste it, wet your fingertips with water and give a light touch on the cookie, so the layer of white fondant will be completely stuck. Ghosts are a must at a Halloween party and yours is already starting to take shape and will be delicious.
3. After placing the white base of the ghost made with fondant, It’s time to make the face with the same sugar material. This step is very simple because you only have to make three balls with the black fondant, two for the eyes, and one a little bigger for the mouth. To make the ghost’s mouth, crush the ball giving it an oval shape. The more oval the mouth, the more scary the ghost cookie will be for Halloween.
4. And that’s it! As you can see, this dessert is very easy and quick to make. In just a few minutes you will have a very original dessert for Halloween and with which you will surprise your guests. To take advantage of the fondant you have used to make the decorated ghost cookies, we encourage you to also make the mummy cookies you can see here, they are very original and ideal to commemorate the night of the dead.
