Heap of Old Bones
Free Halloween Recipe

Here's a fun variation on one of my favorite Christmas treats, meringue cookies.
The light, crispy, melt-in-your-mouth sweetness of meringue is so good to me I could eat them like potato chips -- can't stop at just one, that's for sure!
Now for Halloween, just by varying the shapes of the cookies to duplicate a pile of scary old skeleton bones, you can add a touch of bone-chilling humor to an already popular sweet treat!

As a variation, you can substitute the peppermint extract for almond extract, or other tasty flavors that may be favorites of your own!


Recipe Type:  Dessert

Preparation Time:  Over 1 hour, less than 1 day


- 6 large egg whites

- 1-1/2 cups sugar

- 1/2 teaspoon clear peppermint extract

- 2 cups ground chocolate graham crackers (optional)


1. Heat oven to 200 F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, combine egg whites and sugar. Place bowl over pot of gently simmering water, and whisk constantly until sugar dissolves and egg mixture feels warm to the touch; about 5 minutes.

3. Remove bowl from water bath, and with electric mixer on high speed, beat in peppermint extract. Continue beating until very stiff peaks form, about 8 minutes.

4. Spoon mixture into large resealable plastic bag and snip off corner.

5. Pipe bone shapes onto baking sheets, 4" to 8" long.

6. Bake until crisp throughout, about 65 minutes.

7. Cool completely. Store in airtight container for up to 3 days.

8. Serve meringue partially buried under ground chocolate graham crackers, if desired.
