I've been looking for some cheep (ok, free) ornaments lately, and something to entertain my kids and this is what I came up with.
Their festive, smell delicious (although they wouldn't taste delicious)
and my kids and I had a blast making them.
They're so easy! Just make the dough, roll out, cut, and bake.
Here's the recipe...
Salt Dough Gingerbread
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water (little less)
2 Tbsp malassess
Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix. (I didn't measure the spices, just threw some in to they'd smell good.) Roll out about 1/4 inch thick. Make a hole, with a toothpick, for a ribbon. Bake at 325 degrees for 20-30 minutes. You want them to get hard and dry, not soft like a cookie. When they're cool, tie on a ribbon and hang on your tree!
Enjoy! and Merry Christmas!
