BOO-hoo, they're all gone

Yep, it's so sad...all these ghosts are gone....all 80 of them. I make these with a great Land O' Lakes sugar cookie recipe and they turn out fabulous. They are my son in law's favorite and he is always asking for them. My mom and daughter came over and helped me ice them, cause that's what takes the time, but we have it down to a science because we thin the royal icing and then pour it into a plastic tipped bottle and the royal icing just flows onto the cookie perfectly. Before you flow the icing you have to pipe a firmer royal icing rope around the whole cookie and let that dry completely. All that is left to do is dot the eyes and mouth on with black icing gel. I barely get them onto a plate before they disappear.
