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
hanging ornaments.

Bake @ 300 for 20-40 minutes or until baked.

Our small ornaments made with mini cookie cutter were

Our large thick ornament took 40 minutes.
