Skulls sugar cookies

I was in the supermarket the other day and saw another costumer with one reusable groceries bag with a skulls design that screamed “I want to be a cookie”. I try to get a mental picture of all the details but with 3 little kids around me it was almost impossible. So I head to the cashier’s area to get one just to find out that the bag was from the previous Halloween season and was not available anymore. Since then I have those cookies . . . I mean that design spinning in my head. Luckily for me, in a school event last week, a lady had the same bag and this time I have pen and paper to capture it. I was so excited and get everything ready in no time to start decorating them just to realize that I didn’t like how my 2 first attempts turn out.  So I ended up decorating them with anything and everything that came to my mind and this is the end result

Mouses (mice) and Bones meringue cookies

More Halloween cookies !!!  Little mouses and bones made out of meringue. No previous experience with meringue cookies (basically egg whites and sugar) but they turn out pretty  . . . . uuupppsss they were suppose to be scary or at least disgusting. Not to mention they tasted really good, especially the chocolate mice and I’m not a chocolate lover. Mas galletas de Halloween !!! Ratoncitos y huesos hechos de merengue. No tenia ninguna experiencia previa con galletas de merengue (azucar y claras de huevo basicamente) pero quedaron bonitas . . . .  uuupppssssss se suponia que debian quedar de dar miedo por lo menos. Ademas de que sabian muy ricas, especialmente los ratoncitos de chocolate . . . y yo no soy muy amante del chocolate.Halloween 2011 - 8

Halloween 2011 - 10

My favorite was the Vampire face which I get from a bell cookie cutter with some little trim (on the top) and attachments (for the ears and cape). Mi favorita es la cara del vampiro para la cual use un cortador de campana con unos peque#os cortes (en la parte de arriba) y unos plegantes (para las orejas y el cuello de la capa).
