Christmas Dough Ornaments

Demarle at Home newsletter shared this recipe and I had to try it out! It worked pretty well; however, I added too much dough to mine so they are pretty thick, but they did work. It was much easier than making the kind you roll out and use dough cutters to make the shapes, but you can also do that. We haven't even painted them yet, but the girls did each color one with markers. I need to go buy paint do the rest.

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F and place oven rack in the center position. Mix all ingredients until well blended. Fill Molds or Tray wells with dough. I used the Christmas Tree Tray and the Little Chef Tray (looks like gingerbreak men). Bake for up to 2 hours, until dough is firm in the center.

Make a hole at the top of each ornament BEFORE baking in order to run a ribbon through for hanging the ornament. I just used a straw to poke a hole, make sure it goes all the way through.

TIP: Add food coloring to batter to color dough.
