Halloween decorated cookies

Halloween decorated cookies are nice cookies to give to children for the Halloween party. They are very simple to make and really greedy. I made ghosts and black kittens, but it is also possible to make Jack’o lantern cookies and mummies. For the preparation of the royal ice I recommend using pasteurized egg white.This chocolate shortcrust pastry is very versatile and you can also use it as a base for your tarts. Also, if you don’t like dark chocolate, you can replace it with milk chocolate.
