Recipe Adapted From https://www.smartschoolhouse.com/easy-recipe/ghost-meringues

refined sugar free, dairy free

Ingredients
  • 4 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup natural cane sugar
  • black decorating icing gel (or melted chocolate)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil and spray well with oil.

  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the egg whites on high for about 2 minutes until eggs become frothy and very bubbly.

  4. Reduce speed to medium and slowly add in the sugar.

  5. Once the sugar is all added, add the cream of tartar.

  6. Increase to high speed and whip for another 2 minutes until mixture forms stiff peaks.

  7. Place the meringue mixture into an icing bag or a large ziplock with one tip cut off.

  8. Pipe out the ghosts by pressing out the meringue and holding in one place for a few seconds and lifting up slightly to create the puffed layers.

  9. Bake them for about 45 minutes or until the tops become a little brown.
  10. Remove from oven and let cool. They will harden a bit as they cool.

  11. Decorate the ghosts with the icing gel or melted/cooled chocolate!

  12. Store in an air tight container.
