Non-Edible Cookie Ornaments
1 cup ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons ground all spice
3/4 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons Elmer's glue
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In large bowl, combine all ingredients. If too dry, add more applesauce, and if it is too wet, add more cinnamon. Knead dough 3 minutes to form a ball. Between two sheets of wax paper, roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness, do not roll too thin. Make a hole using a toothpick, at the top of the cookie, so you can hang the ornament. Using cookie cutters, cut dough into shapes, and place on baking sheet. Bake 2 hours, turning every 30 minutes. If you don't want to bake the ornaments you can let them air dry for a couple of days. Decorate with craft puff paint, or other craft items.
This is a great craft for kids and adults to do on Christmas day. I always make the cookies at least a day or two before I need them.
The first time I did this craft, I only make enough cookies for the kids to decorate. I was surprised at how many adults wanted to decorate one too, so now I make extras, and everyone who wants to decorate one can.
Our son Tyler, made the green man and the American flag man
ornaments when he was in Jr. High.
