    I was looking through my recipes trying to find one for Bonnie and came across this. It's a fun project to do with kids. Somewhere I have one's to do with cinnamon (the cheap kind you get at a dollar store) they keep their cinnamon smell after they are done. If I find it I'll post it too.

    Ornament dough
    INGREDIENTS:
    4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup salt
    1 1/2 cups water

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). (300 cuts down on puffiness)
    2. Mix the flour, salt and water. Knead dough until smooth. Roll out dough and cut into desired shapes. Bake at 200 for 4 hours turn over bake at 200 for couple of more hours or better still air dry. Once cool paint with colors, if desired.
    Stick hole with paint brush end before baking

    Oh this does bring back memories! I used to do this with the kids when I taught. Also, with my children when they were little.

    Lori, I hope you can find the cinamon recipe. I think it uses applesauce. I've wanted to make some of those.

    Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments

    3 C. applesauce
    8 oz. Cassia cinnamon powder, approximately
    Vegetable cooking spray
    24-48 pieces satin ribbon

    Line a strainer with cheesecloth or paper towel. Place strainer in large bowl. Pour applesauce into strainer, let drain for 8 hours.

    Gradually add the cinnamon to the applesauce until the dough is pliable and resembles pie dough. Place a quarter of the dough on a sheet of plastic wrap and place another sheet over the top. Using a rolling pin, flatten the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Slide a spatula under the cut ornament dough and place on a cookie sheet sprayed with vegetable cooking spray. Use a toothpick to poke a hole to hang the ornament; make it bigger than you think because it shrinks during baking. Place in 175 F. oven for 6 hours or until firm and dry.

    Makes 24 to 48 ornaments.

    No-Bake Cinnamon Dough Ornament Recipe

    1 1/2 C. ground cinnamon
    1 C. applesauce
    1/4 C. white school glue - like Elmer's

    1. Mix cinnamon, applesauce, and glue together in a bowl
    2. Mixture should have a consistency of cookie dough
    Tip: If it seems hard - add a little water
    3. Knead dough for 5-10 minutes, place in bowl, cover with plastic wrap so it doesn't dry out, and let sit for 30-45 minutes
    4. Knead dough again until smooth
    5. Roll out dough between waxed paper until thickness is 1/8 to 1/4 inch

    1 C. cinnamon
    1 C. nutmeg
    1- 2 1/2 C. of warm water

    Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

    How do you restore them? Or did you mean that you store them during the year?
