After the creation of our meringue apple pie, my kids have been obsessed with the thought of meringue anything.

This week, I was making up a batch of homemade hollandaise sauce and had a bunch of egg whites to use up. Well, what better to do with those egg whites than to make some delicious meringue cookies. Since it’s October, we decided to make them into ghostly meringue cookies for fun!
