This was so easy to make and very fun for the kids. However, do NOT follow the cooking directions or you will have puffy dark brown ornaments. Try 250 degrees and check after 20-25 minutes. If they are still soft, continue baking and check every 5 minutes. I tried both acrylic paint and poster paint to decorate, both worked equally well. Don't forget to poke a hole at the top with a straw before baking for the ribbon to hang on the tree.

I thought this was a great recipe for ornaments. It was quick, easy, not at all messy, kids loved it. I did put the oven down to about 300, and it cut down on the puffiness, I also added allspice, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon to the recipe to make it a gingerbread color, and it smells GREAT while baking. It made about 30 cookies for me. I put a hole in the top w/ the end of a paint brush, the straw hole was a bit too big for me. A really cute idea for hanging--gingham rag ties- very country and rustic looking. Try making a rag tie garland as well.

Making Christmas ornaments is my favorite creative endeavor after cooking. However, anyone who makes these, or other food-based ornaments should know that sometimes bugs (or even other attic-dwelling critters!) can ruin your beautiful artwork. To avoid the problem, always store flour-based ornaments in airtight boxes. My favorite storage for these are metal cookie/gift boxes, which also make the cutest type of package if you are giving these ornaments as gifts!
