A richly scented ornamental cookie. These would be fabulous decorating a christmas tree, but don't try to eat them!

1 cup ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons white glue
3/4 to 1 cup water

Mix cinnamon and glue. Gradually add the water. Stir until a ball of dough forms. Roll out with rolling pin 1/4 inch thick and cut with cookie cutters. Poke a hole and let dry at room temperature for 1 to 2 days, turning over every 6-8 hours. If desired, decorate with white Royal Icing. Hang with ribbon and enjoy the fragrance!

Note: Yield depends on how big your cookie cutters are.

Would make this again.
This is my 13th year teaching kindergarten and I have made these ornaments with my students every year!! They are simple to make and they look and smell wonderful!! We always paint them and decorate with glitter glue :) I also would recommend adding the water slowly, because it often does not take the full amount of water. Have fun with this project!! 5 stars

These were great! They decorated the tree very prettily and they were easy to make! They were amazing till my 3 year old tried to eat them! 4 stars

How adorable are these? We had a blast making these. Just beware, add the water slowly. I, like a numbskull, dumped it all in at once. Then again, having to add more cinnamon increased the batch. So it wasn't all bad. Now my house smells wonderful and looks even more festive! 5 stars

This recipe was great. My students and I made two batches and made tons of ornaments for our Christmas tree. The smell was heavenly for a few days. I liked the fact that we did not have to use applesauce (we ate that!). Instead of icing, we painted them and put glitter in the glue to dry. They were beautiful. 5 stars

Those cookies look delicious! It's so hard to not want to eat them! You should swing by the USPS Facebook page and share your recipe! 5 stars
