I also accept non edible cookies, I placed two recipes below. Do not eat these cookies. They are only for making ornaments.
Apple Sauce Cinnamon ornaments ( you can hang these aliens anywhere) :
3/4 cup applesauce
2 bottles (2.37 oz. each) Cinnamon, Ground
Preheat oven to 200°F. Mix applesauce and cinnamon in small bowl until a smooth ball of dough is formed. (You may need use your hands to incorporate all of the cinnamon.) Using about 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll dough to 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap. Cut dough into desired shapes with 2- to 3-inch cookie cutters. Make a hole at top of ornament with drinking straw or skewer. Place ornaments on baking sheet.
Bake 2 1/2 hours. Cool ornaments on wire rack. (Or, to dry ornaments at room temperature, carefully place them on wire rack. Let stand 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally.)
Salt Dough Ornaments:
– 4 cups Flour
– 1 cup Salt
– 1.5 cups Water (maybe a little more)
1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Combine your flour, salt and water and mix well. Knead for 10 minutes. If your dough is too dry, add a little bit more water. If it’s too sticky, add a little bit of flour. It will help to place flour down on your surface when kneading and on your hands.
3. Once you’re done kneading, roll out the dough to about 1/2 cm thickness. The thinner you make the ornaments, the better they will thoroughly bake and dry through.
4.Roll out dough and use your favorite cookie cutters
5.Bake for 1-2 hours. If your ornaments are not completely dried through when you pull them out put back in for another hour. The baking time will vary greatly depending on the size and thickness of your ornaments. Larger ornaments will take longer whereas smaller ornaments will take less time. You can also let them air dry for a day before baking and this will cut down on the baking time.
If you notice puffing when baking, it is likely because the ornaments are too thick. In this case, let them air dry for a few days before baking.
