  • Place dough on waxed paper and cover it with a piece of wax paper.
  • Roll out dough to 1/4" inch thick and remove wax paper. (Thicker is better, as it dries in the oven as it reduces the chance of cracking or breaking).

  • In a 170 F – 200 F oven, allow ornaments to dry completely.
  • Keep an eye on the ornaments, making sure they aren't curling at the edges or cracking.
