This really is so simple. The recipe we ended up using came from Tori Spelling in Us Weekly, but it was almost identical to the recipe we used when I was a kid.
2 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
3/4 cup warm water
Holiday cookie cutters
Paints, glue and glitter to decorate
Ribbon or twine
1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Mix Flour and salt. Add water. Knead until soft. (If dry add more water.)
2. Roll dough on floured surface to 1/4-inch this. Cut with cutters. Add hole with straw. Place shapes on sprayed cookie sheet and bake 2 to 4 hours.
3. Decorate. Tie ribbon through hole.
