Ghostly Delights

4 egg whites

1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

2/3 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla or lemon extract

2/3 cup powdered sugar

Dried raisins, currants or cranberries, cut in smaller pieces.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment and lightly grease; set aside.

In small bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar and beat until mixture forms soft peaks. Add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating constantly at high speed until still and glossy. Beat in vanilla or lemon extract.

Sift powdered sugar over top and fold in by hand.

In a pastry bag spoon in meringue and fold over to enclose. Slowly squeeze onto paper-lined baking sheets to make small upright mounds about 1 1/2 - 2 inches wide like Hershey Kisses. Decorate with raisins for eyes.

Bake 200° for 1 1 1/2 hours or until dry. Remove with spatula and place on flat surface to cool. Store in airtight container.

1/2 cup instant tea powder (not lemon flavored)

1 cup orange-flavored breakfast drink powder

1 1/2 cup sugar

4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Combine and store in air tight container.

Bring 8 cups water to a boil. remove from heat and add 1 cup dry mix. This is about 2 heaping teaspoons per cup of hot water. Stir to dissolve.
