These are GREAT! Not only cute, but tasted great as well. Everyone loved them and they were gone in a flash!


My girls and I made these last October. They were easy to make, but we ate the ones with the powder suger on first. The fruit wraped ones presented well BUT were alittle sticky and too sweet for us. I suggest just making them as true ghosts and use the powder suger as the topping to the delicious cookie!
