Baked Christmas Tree Ornaments
 
I bought 6 aluminum cookie cutter's at the flea market today for a $1.00 each . A bell,reindeer,Christmas ornament,star,candy cane and Christmas tree.

I'm wanting to make some ornament's that you bake only don't eat as they get hard .

Does anyone know how to do this? I made some when I was in elementary school ,but that was many moon ago.

Thank you!

We have something like that in Germany as well...it´s called Salzgebäck...it gets very, very hard...´so You can´t eat it....even if You wanted to....but if You try to taste it (lick it) it tastes kinda salty......one time my grandpops was at our place and mom had that stuff on the table as decoration....grandpa took a bite and almost lost a tooth....:D....

When my kids were little they would make these at school. I still have a few of them, they smell really good.

Haha ! poor grandpa. That sounds like the fake bread that I have setting on my table. I bought it at a yard sale and it looks VERY real.

Could you please send me the recipe for Salzgeback?

the cinnamon applesauce ornaments get really hard and so does the salt dough ornaments.. I don't have a recipe handy but I know you can find them on a google search

Ahhh, great minds think alike.

I'm going to be doing some baked decorations too (Salt Dough).

The recipe I have at the mo is:

300g plain flour
300g Salt
200ml water
1tbsp oil

Mix together (you could add a few drops of food coloring if you want). Roll out and cut to shapes desired. Bake at 180degrees (GM4) for about 20 minutes or until hard. Then allow to cool, paint and decorate :)

Hope this helps

Thank you VeryWelshXmasLover!

If you don't mind my asking ...what would the measurement's translate to for the USA or how would I go about finding out?

VeryWelshXmasLover 09-24-2008 03:27 PM

what measurements do you use? :)

Ms_Speedy_Elf 09-24-2008 03:30 PM

We use teaspoons,tablespoon's ,ounce's.

Like where you have 300g of plain flour,how many ounce's would that be ?

VeryWelshXmasLover 09-24-2008 03:52 PM

Ok then...it should be:

300g / 10oz plain flour
300g / 10oz salt
1/3 pint of water
1 tablespoon of oil

(i think thats right...)
