From My Heart

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6 -NIV

Sharing a recipe……….

As promised I’m sharing Christmas recipe. I chose to post this one first for those of you with young children at home or even grandchildren. They are fun to make together and put off a sweet smell. I hope you enjoy!

Cinnamon Ornaments
What you will need:
3/4 cup Applesauce
1 cup ground Cinnamon
1 Tbsp. Nutmeg
2 Tbsp. White glue
Christmas cookie cutters
Toothpick or drinking straw
Yarn or Ribbon in cheery Christmas colors
Directions:
1. Mix cinnamon, nutmeg and applesauce together in small bowl. Stir in white glue. Mix to form stiff dough. (if dough is too wet add more cinnamon, if too dry add more applesauce)
2. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness on waxed paper. Cut with cookie cutters. Make a hole in top of ornament with toothpick or drinking straw.
3. Carefully lay the cinnamon ornaments flat on rack to dry. Let dry at room temperature 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry – turning occasionally. If the sides start to curl, gently flip the ornament over.
3a. An alternate to room drying is to bake them. Gently place your ornaments on a non-stick cookie sheet and bake at 200° for approx. 1 hour – checking to make sure they do not burn. Let the ornaments sit on a wire rack overnight to completely dry.
4. Insert ribbon through holes and tie to hang. You can use these sweet smelling Cinnamon Ornaments to decorate your Christmas Tree, indoor garlands, packages, etc…
Cinnamon Ornaments can be stored in a plastic storage bag from year to year and they do keep their sweet smell somewhat.
