Last week while I was making some delicious cookies, I thought how fun would it be to make Gingerbread Christmas ornaments!
I had originally wanted to make some baked cinnamon ornaments, but when I found out how much cinnamon was needed, I didn’t really want to run up the store to buy it. I was in the middle of baking sugar and gingerbread cookies, so I figured I could achieve pretty much the same effect with the gingerbread.
I was already using these Rolled & Ready Cookie Dough Sheets, so I just cut a few extra shapes to put to the side to use as the ornaments. Using a straw, I punched out a little hole at the top of each ornament to tie a ribbon through later. After my cookies were done baking, I set the oven to 300° and baked the ornament cookies on a baking sheet for 30 minutes.
After they cooled completely, I decorated them with a paint pen. You could also have the kiddos decorate them with puffy paint!
