It's Beginning To Smell A Lot Like Christmas at my house today. A few weeks ago Linda from Behind My Red Door posted about making her gingerbread dough ornaments and I decided then that I would try my luck at this. I've never made them before. Yesterday I mixed my dough and the recipe said to refrigerate overnight. Believe it or not...I was patient enough to do this. I only rolled out one baking and there's enough dough left to make about four times more. I will spray these with the satin finish. Linda had tried dipping hers in wax and didn't really like the finish so she saved me that step. I couldn't wait to see what they would look like with a ribbon so I jumped ahead and tied one. I'll tell you one thing....they smell good enough to eat however I think I might break a tooth if I tried because they are definitely hard!! I'd like to try drying some of the orange slices to hang. Does anyone know how to do this or would I be better to buy a bag????
