The dough is made from household staples of flour,
water, salt & oil. It's easy to work with and does not
spread when baking. Mini cookie cutters are perfect for
decorating mini trees.
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups water
2-3 tsp oil
Mix in a bowl.
When you can't incorporate any more of the flour,
dump on a board & knead remaining flour into dough.
Knead until smooth.
Roll dough, cut with cookie cutters.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Use a toothpick to make a hole for threading and
Bake @ 300 for 20-40 minutes or until baked.

presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other."
These were made with mini cookie cutters. They took 20 minutes to bake. They are decorated
with paint & markers. The bumpy white look of Santa's beard, snowflake & doves was created by
stirring white glitter into white paint.
Baked. Remember to make a hole
big enough to fit your thread through.
