These are fun to make and smell soooo good! I have made them lots of times and really enjoyed them.
I had a hard time with these. The "dough" was very crumbly and the dried ornaments stuck to the cookie sheets like cement. The non-stick sheet worked okay so we got a few very thin and fragile ones. I painted them with a thin layer of glue to strengthen them a bit and then decorated them with glitter glue.
