  • Summary

    You and your guests will be utterly charmed when you see how easily mashed potatoes can be transformed into a gaggle of ghosts. Simply form them into pointy mounds and then personify—no, make that "ghostify"—them with seed "eyes." Don't be surprised if these become a new family must-have for Halloweens to come.

    Ingredients

    • 4 pounds large boiling potatoes (preferably white-fleshed)
    • 3/4 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces
    • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
    • 3 large egg yolks
    • Nigella seeds (sometimes mislabeled "black onion seeds") or caraway seeds for garnish
    • Equipment: a potato ricer or a food mill fitted with medium disk; a pastry bag with 3/4-inch plain tip
