It's Cookie Time

Today starts the fun of baking cookies for Christmas. The first project will be cinnamon scented tree ornaments. This is a great activity for children and tonight the boys and I will be making "gingerbread men" to hang on our trees. These are not edible cookies but if carefully made can last for years and a few drops of cinnamon oil can replenish the scent. I still have a couple from years ago when Amber Corgan Finley gave me the recipe: 3 cups applesauce and 3 cups cinnamon. Some people put white glue into the mix as well.
