How to make it

  • You want to create a clay-like consistency with this mixture.
  • Dust hands with cinnamon when handling.
  • Roling the dough between 2 sheets of waxed paper makes it much easier.
  • If you choose not to use the following method, then allow the shapes to dry for at least 3 days before attempting to remove and decorate.
  • This step is not necessary but if you want the cut out shapes to dry faster, bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 150 degrees F. for 1 hour.
  • Remove the cut outs from the cookie sheets but be very careful and bake on either the oven racks or cookie racks for another 1-1/2 hours.
  • Remember not to roll the dough tinner than 1/4 inch if you are following this method of making.
  • These can be decorated when completely dried and if they lose the fragrance, you can always add a drop of cinnamon oil onto the ornament. I also like the smell of Oil of Theives if you can find it.
  • NOTE: It is difficult to say how many this recipe will make because it depends on the sizes of the shapes being cut out.
