An Afternoon with Ghosts

November 2, 2012 § 2 Comments

Call me cray cray, but I’m not particularly fond of candy. I find it mostly dissatisfying. But let’s talk cakes, pies, cookies, loafs, or anything of the baked nature. That’s where it’s at. Especially mini versions of the real thing.

Thus, this year’s Halloween festivities shall not include the disappointing candy bar nor a massive overwhelming costume party. Instead, four ladies huddled in a little kitchen in SE Portland. We all had one goal in mind – mini ghost cookie creations.

I mean…look at the little faces on these guys. I need not explain the motivation behind making them. They are too cute for words! All one needs is a simple sugar cookie recipe, frosting (we added a few drops of almond extract for a twist), fine tip paint brushes, and food coloring. Easy peesy. Except I must note that these are quite time consuming in the drying and cooling times. FYI.

We did all this while sipping Chemex coffee, topped with a dollop of the most delicious coconut milk/vanilla/cinnamon concoction (Thank you, Leah!) I can’t think of anything that gets you more prepared for the holidays than the scent of butter & sugar combined with the warmth from the oven. It was one of those cozy and enjoyable afternoons with natural conversation and a mutual appreciation for such things.
