Hi! I'm Rachel. I'm Jenn's big sister. I live in Colorado. This last weekend my husband's family all came out here for Thanksgiving & us girls "needed" something to help pass the time so we came up with these garlands. I think they turned out perty cute!
Make these Cinnamon Scented Cookies
*Note: These are not intended to eat!
1/2 cup cinnamon
1 Tbsp. ground cloves
3/8 cup apple sauce (for those of you that are not mathetically minded like me that is 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup!)
3 Tbsp. white glue
Mix til well blended. Roll out til mixture is approximatly 1/4" thick.
Cut out shapes with your favorite cookie cutters. Poke holes into the shapes with a straw.
Let cookies sit to dry for a few days or if you are in a hurry like we were bake in the oven @ 250* for 20 minutes.
We also added apples & oranges to the garland. Here is how we dried the fruit-
Mix 2 cups lemon juice & 1 Tbsp. salt. Boil for 3 minutes. Cut fruit into 1/4 - 1/2 inch slices. Dip fruit into the lemon juice mixture. Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil. Place all the fruit onto cookie sheet. Bake @ 150*-175* for 8 hours turning the fruit every 2 hours.
We dried the fruit ahead so that we could make the garlands in 1 day!
We had alot of fun making these- maybe you will too!
Enjoy! And have a Merry Christmas!
Thank-you for this post :) now, go make your own ladies!!!!
