I use a mixture of applesauce and cinnamon. It is not necessary to put in
the Elmer's, however is you are worried about them breaking apart you can.
The kneading takes a great deal of time to get smooth. I have the children
cut out with heart cutter's (can be Swedish ornament at Christmas or
valentine) tie for hanging with a red ribbon. I have had them last as long
as three years. No bugs. a light sanding revives scent. Linda in Ok

Subject: cinnamon dough question. Help!
> Hi everyone.
> I have not been using the list for the past 18 months or so because I have
been so busy (have a 19 month old son,and a full time job etc..) but also
because around that time my access to the list was rearranged somehow and I
now have to have the messages of the entire day e-mailed to me in a long
attachment as opposed to what I used to do which was to go to the site and
look the mesages up (I could do this on an hourly basis if I was "chatting"

people are talking about? Did anything change or is it just my lack of
> Anyway, am planning to make cinnamon dough for next weeks' classes and was
wondering which type is best, the baked type or the type where you add glue
to the dough (Elmers or something like it) and let it self harden. I see a
lot of recipes out there and I know some of you have tried many and I can
learn from your mistakes.
