These decorations are fun to make with the kids and smell amazing...don't let them eat the mixture though! I was sceptical that this recipe would work, but it really does. You can buy cheap, large packets of cinnamon from the 'ethnic foods' section of large supermarkets. You might want to double the recipe.
- 1 cup home made or bought apple sauce
- 1 cup cinnamon powder (you might need more)
- 2 tbsp PVA glue
Flatten the dough on a sheet of greaseproof paper, to around ½ cm thick.
Cut out gingerbread men or Christmas shapes using cookie cutters.
Use a drinking straw to punch a hole in the top of each shape.
Leave in a warm place to dry over night, turn the next day and repeat until they are hard - alternatively put on a baking tray in a very low oven, for several hours.
Decorate with glitter glue and thread with ribbon to hang. Pin It
