Kari Nolden has another great Holiday Ornament Recipe


Mix until the consistency of cookie dough. (Add more water if needed.) Sprinkle cinnamon on the cutting board and knead the dough. Roll out 1/4-inch thick. Cut into ornament shapes using cookie cutters or popsicle sticks. Punch hole in the top with a straw or pencil before drying (so you can string ribbon through later for hanging). Bake in 350° oven for 30 minutes or until firm. Let them cool, then decorate!
