I also write Aunty.
I would write Aunties if i was referring to more than one - but never just auntie.
I don't know what's right though.

To me it's 'Aunty'. 'Auntie' just looks weird and wrong to me.
DF spells it 'Ate', no idea where he got that from

Coincidentally i was looking this up just the other day. i use both, don't know why I guess I'm just indecisive! Anyways,
If you are addressing a middle age female, and you do not know her name, in South East Asia, Singapore, or Malaysia, the spelling is Auntie.
If you are addressing the sister of your parent, then it is a slang term. The proper word to use would be aunt. If you choose to use the slang, both spellings are listed in the Encarta World English Dictionary.
