Calories 15 kcal


  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Orange food coloring optional
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  • Place egg whites in a small bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Add extracts and vinegar; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved, about 6 minutes. Beat in food coloring if desired.
  • Transfer the meringue to a pastry bag fitted with a #10 round tip. Pipe 1-1/2-in.-diameter ghost shapes onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Add 2 chips on each for eyes.
  • Bake at 250° until set and dry, 40-45 minute. Turn oven off; leave cookies in oven for 1 hour. Carefully remove from parchment. Store in an airtight container.
