Fragrant Cinnamon Hearts to use as Sweet Little Scented Gift Tags.
Love the Beautiful Colors of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint I Created a few Cinnamon dough Hearts ready to string for sweet little Valentine's Day Tags
Cinnamon Dough Recipe:
3 Cups Flour
1 Cup Salt
1 Cup Cinnamon
1 Cup Nutmeg
1- 2 1/2 Cups of Warm Water
1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Add in the water a little at a time, keep adding water and mixing well until the dough is formed.
3. Roll the dough to desired thickness and begin cutting out shapes with a cookie cutter. Recommend to Roll out dough between waxed paper until thickness is 1/8 to 1/4 inch
Place ornaments on an ungreased baking sheet and use a straw to make holes for hanging the ornaments.
Bake for 1 1/2 hours at 225 degrees. Place on a wire rack and return to the over for another 1 1/2 hours to ensure the ornaments are completely dry on the bottom.
Let sit and cool, then decorate.
I painted my Cinnamon Hearts with Milk Paint. It sticks well to the hearts and then Crackles for a nice Rustic look. The Milk Paint does not smell so it allows the Cinnamon Scent to remain Nice and Fragrant.
