A few years ago I made cinnamon ornaments. I thought it was a great idea, so I found this recipe and tried it out. It looks like there are lots of recipes for this sort of dough, but this one worked out fine. They take a while to dry, so this is one of those crafts that tests how patient one can be.
I saw some recipes say to decorate these with royal icing, but I used puff paint on mine. I wanted to be able to keep mine year after year.
Dad even got into the crafty project. He was a little more creative with his "icing" than I was!
Here are our cinnamon ornaments. They really look like real cookies, no?
We used the cinnamon ornaments year after year and they have really kept nicely and they smell wonderful to this day!
