Cinnamon Dough Ornaments Recipe!

I made these when I think I was in 2nd grade and I still have it. It still smells like cinnamon! So last year I made a bunch in various Christmas shapes and this year I want to give them to people who don't already have one! This year I am going to make initalis, for example if your name is Erin you would get an E! Ya ya! It is a great craft to do alone, with friends, your kids or if you are a teacher, with your class. So have a merry time with it.

Cinnamon Dough Ingriedients: 
1 cup ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons white glue (the liquid kind)
3/4 to 1 cup water (this will very so play it by ear and check the consistancy)

Other odds and ends needed:
Wax paper
A rolling pin
One straw or however many depending on how many people are making these cuties!
Several different cookie cutters of your choice. I got my letter ones from Sur La Table.
A baking sheet to lay them on to dry. 
Cute ribbon

Things you can add to it:
Craft glitter or rhinestones!

Step 1: Mix cinnamon and glue, gradually add water. (This is where you can start to check the doughs consistancy)
Step 2: Stir until a ball forms
Step 3: Lay wax paper on surface and roll dough out with a rolling pin until it is 1/4 inch thick.
Step 4: Go crazy with your cookie cutters until you have nearly no dough left! Discard leftovers.
Step 5: Lay dough on a cookie sheet, wax paper or paper towl to dry for 1 to 2 days
Step 6: Once you lay them where the are to dry, take the straw and gentley press the straw into  the top of the ornament to make a hole. This is where your ribbon will go through once your dough is dry.
Step 7: Flip your ornaments over after day one so it can evenly dry on both sides and viola! A yummy smelling ornament that friends and family will love!

Hello all! Happy Thanksgiving!

It has been a while but I have decided to deticate more time FOR REAL to my little blog! Today I will share with you my two favorite recipes for Thanksgiving that  I have been making every year for about 6 years now. One is an appetizer dip and the other: PUMPKIN PIE of course! This pie has a twist though and you wont guess what it is! Both recipes come from and I do not claim them as my own original concotions. So thanks allrecipes. Lets get started!

Appetizer: Tuscan Cream Cheese Spread

2 (8oz packages) cream cheese softened

2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 (14oz) can artichoke hearts, drained
1/3 cup chopped black olives
8 green onions, chopped
3 ounces sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

1. In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, garlic and salt, stir. Blend in the artichokes and olives.
2. Add green onions, tomatoes, parsley and chives. Mix together gently.
3. Refrigerate for several hours or over night. (I like over night best)

Cindy's Pumpkin Pie

1 1/2 or 2.5 cups pint of vanilla ice cream (I like Dryers slow churned vanilla bean). YES this is the twist!

3 eggs
1 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup of white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 reaspoon ground nutmeg (I like 1/2 teaspoon for added aroma and spice)
2 (9 inch) unbaked pie shells

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F or 220 degrees C and place ice cream near warm oven to soften (I let mine melt to liquid)

2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs. Stir in pumpkin puree, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Mix in ice cream until smooth (This is why I let it melt to a liquid becasue the ice cream is cold and wont mix if softened. I havent noticed a difference in texture of the pie when melting it vs softening it).
3. Pour into the two pie shells and place on a baking sheet.
4. Bake for 15 min (ovens may very) in preheated oven. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C and bake for an additional 30 to 40 min.

Voila! A yummy pie with an interesting ingredient that could be a great conversation starter!

Beauty Bites:

-Even though Thanksgiving is two days away I have all my Christmas decorations up with the exception of my fake Christmas tree who is promptly named Winston. He will go up on Black Friday.

-I have decided I want to be a third grade teacher which will hopefully lead to becoming a principal and I still want to pursue opening a candle company on etsy. Yes, we can all aim to have it all. I hope to start school in June.

-I do not like the taste of cilantro and accidently ate some today.

-I love wet n wild's new holiday collection! Especially the extra sparkly nail polish in 24 karat. Only prob: it chips really quick, so no bueno! It a toe polish color only I guess.

-Lastly I am currently in love with Yankee Candle's Holiday Bayberry candle. It is a great sniff for Thanksgiving, earthy, warm, a tad spicey and just perfect for giving thanks!

Have a beauty inspired night!
