I seen someone had listed a recipe for gingerbread ornaments. I have never tried it but plan too. I wanted to share this recipe with you all.
Making Cinnamon Ornaments are a perfect holiday fun activity for kids. The ornaments are easy to make and their aroma lasts long after the holidays are over. Prep Time:
2 1/2 hours, or 1 to 2 days drying time
Makes 12 to 15 ornaments. Ingredients:
3/4 cup applesauce
1 bottle (4.12 ounces) Ground Cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 200°F. 2. Mix applesauce and cinnamon with hands in small bowl until a smooth ball of dough is formed. Using about 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll dough to 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap; cut dough into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Make a hole in top of ornament with drinking straw. Place ornaments on baking sheet.
3. Bake for 2 1/2 hours. Cool ornaments on wire rack.. (Or, to dry ornaments at room temperature, carefully place them on wire rack. Let stand 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally.)
4. Insert ribbon through holes and tie to hang. May be decorated with opaque paint markers found in arts and crafts stores, if desired.
: If a different size bottle of cinnamon is used, measure 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons cinnamon
