Make It: Sweeten your seasonal decor by using tree ornaments made from cookie dough. You'll need four cups of flour, one and one-half cups of water, one cup of salt, clear protective food coating and ribbon. First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Next, combine the first four ingredients. Knead the mixture into dough and roll out flat. Cut the dough into fun shapes using holiday cookie cutters, then place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. After removing from the oven, and while the cookies are still soft, use a knife to poke a small hole in the top of each. Coat the cookies with a clear protective food coating, thread ribbon through each hole and hang on the tree.
