      Haunted Taco Tarts
      1 tablespoon vegetable oil
      1/2 cup chopped onion
      1/2 pound ground turkey
      1 clove garlic, minced
      1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
      1/2 teaspoon chili powder
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      Egg Yolk Paint (recipe follows)
      1 (15 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
      1 egg white
      1/2 cup chopped tomato
      1/2 cup taco-flavored shredded cheese

      Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender. Add turkey; cook until turkey is no longer pink, stirring occasionally.

      Stir in garlic, oregano, chili powder and salt; set aside.

      Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheets.

      Prepare Egg Yolk Paint; set aside.

      On lightly floured surface, roll 1 pie crust to 14-inch diameter. Using 3-inch Halloween cookie cutters, cut out pairs of desired shapes. Repeat with second pie crust, rerolling dough if necessary.

      Place 1/2 of shapes on prepared baking sheets. Brush edges with egg white. Spoon about 1 tablespoon taco mixture onto each shape.

      Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon tomato and 1 teaspoon cheese. Top with remaining matching shapes; press edges to seal. Decorate with Egg Yolk Paint.

      Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

      Egg Yolk Paint:
      4 egg yolks, divided
      4 teaspoons water, divided
      Red, yellow, blue and green liquid food colorings

      Place 1 egg yolk in each of 4 small bowls. Add 1 teaspoon water and a few drops different food coloring to each; beat lightly.
