Using part of the mixture, roll out the dough on waxed paper sprinkled with cinnamon as if you were making

Use gingerbread man or other cookie cutouts to make the ornaments and a drinking straw to cut the hanger
hole in the top of the ornament.
As you make more ornaments, change the waxed paper before it gets soggy.
To use the last bit of dough, roll it into a ball and pierce with a florist wire or straightened paper clip.
The bead can be used with ornaments in a garland.
Place ornaments on a cookie sheet and bake at 170Ί for one hour. To prevent breaking, keep the ornaments in the oven for 5 hours after turning off the heat.
Tie ribbons or thread hooks through the ornaments to hang on a tree or wreath.
