RECIPE OF THE WEEK


This week's recipe is a little different....you can't eat it! But in the spirit of getting ready for the holidays I thought this fun project might be one you would enjoy.

CINNAMON ORNAMENTS

Ingredients:

1 c. cinnamon
1 c. applesauce
1 T. white glue

Mix together until it forms a ball and can be rolled out with a rolling pin without being sticky. Before rolling, sprinkle counter with cinnamon to keep dough from sticking to the counter. Cut with cookie cutters in the shapes you like (I like stars). Make a hole for hanging in the top of each ornament with a straw or ice pick before baking. Dry in a 150F oven for about 3 hours, turning halfway through. They will shrink as they dry. After dry and cooled, thread ribbon or gold cord through the holes for hanging. Cinnamon ornaments will keep their fragrance for several years and can be refreshed with cinnamon fragrance oil.

I haven't made any yet this year...probably won't have the time.
But it's a great thing to do with your children.
