You’ll Need:
4 large egg whites
2 cups icing sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract

Preheat oven to 250F. In a large bowl beat egg whites until stiff. Gradually start adding the sugar, one tablespoon at a time.

Keep beating and adding sugar until you have a meringue. Fold in the almond extract

Line baking trays with parchment paper or wax paper.

Using a piping bag with a plain nozzle pipe a straight meringue bone line (approximately 4 inches long).

Pipe a meringue ball at the end of each bone. If necessary shape bones further using a small knife or the back of a spoon.

Bake for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes or until bones have dried out.

Remove from oven and let cool on paper. For added effect, serve them on bed Graveyard dirt (crushed chocolate wafer cookies!)

Other tips, if you don’t have piping bags, you can use gallon size zip style bags and snip off the corner.
