  • SALT DOUGH ORNAMENTS
    1 c. all-purpose flour
    1/2 c. salt
    About 1/3 c. water
    Mix the salt and flour together in a bowl. Add the water a little at a time. Squeeze the dough with your hands until it is smooth. Roll out dough using rolling pin (on a floured surface). Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Let air dry on aluminum foil covered cookie sheet for 24 hours. Or bake in 225 degree oven about 5 minutes. Watch closely - do not burn ornaments. Be sure to put a hole at the top of each ornament before baking, so you can hang them on Christmas tree. May paint or use markers to decorate. May coat with clear shellac or nail polish to preserve ornaments.

  • CINNAMON CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS
    3/4-1 c. applesauce
    1 (4.12 oz.) bottle ground cinnamon
    Mix applesauce and cinnamon together to form a stiff dough. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters. Make a hole for ribbon. Carefully place on rack to dry. Let air dry several days, turning occasionally. If you prefer they may be baked at 150 degrees for 5-6 hours.
