A few years ago I started making these cute little Baiser Geister or Meringue Ghosts for Halloween. The kids love them… and since meringues are favorites of mine, I love them too. I can hear it now… but Halloween isn’t a GERMAN THING.

Well, no. Germany isn’t Halloween crazy like here in the US. But… the celebration is taking off in some communities in Germany. (Read more about that here)

And Ghosties are sort of universal.

And meringue is delicious.  (You can also make other shapes… like hearts or Christmas Trees…)

Baiser Geister

Give them a try…

Step by Step for Baiser Geister

Whip up the egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar to a stiff but still glossy meringue… and put it in a piping bag

Pipe a ghost shape… start with a blob at the top, then zig zag down. I like wide shoulders and a skinny tail… but ghosts can be whatever shape you want them to be.

Add sprinkles where the eyes go (if you would rather use frosting or icing for eyes, that comes AFTER baking)
