I had another post scheduled for today but a few tweaks were in order so instead, we are going to look at some sugar…
But not in that order.
First, my cinnamon ornaments were pretty popular last year but for those of you who weren’t around back then , I thought I’d share them again in a condensed version.
CINNAMON ORNAMENT RECIPE:
1 cup of cinnamon
1 TBSP ground cloves
1 TBSP nutmeg
3/4 cup applesauce
2 TBSP white glue
Mix the dry ingredients, then add the applesauce and glue.
Roll out on a cutting board using cinnamon instead of flour, and cut your shapes using cookie cutters. Use a straw to add the holes to hang them with. Bake on a cookie sheet at 250° for 2 hours, turning them over after 1 hour. It is important that you do this step to prevent “curling” at the edges. Let cool on a rack before using.
Once they are ready, use them for ornaments on your tree, teacher gifts, or Christmas gift embellishments. They smell wonderful – and you know me, I love the scents of the season!
Next, it is all about the sugar that increase in volume this time of year.
Cassidy came home from work last night and made us some of her her famous cupcakes.
Chocolate cupcakes and whipped buttercream frosting topped with sprinkles and chocolate trees on half, and pearls and white chocolate snowmen on the other half.
They are soooooo good.
And sooooo cute!
