Every one’s been making these lately, which was helpful for me because I knew I wanted to make them, but didn’t know the recipe.
Here’s the recipe I used: 5 Orange Potatoes, mainly because it said you could cook them. I don’t think the kids have the patience to wait 4-5 days for them to air dry. There’s also a slightly different recipe here at Pocketful of Posies.
Recipe: 1C cinnamon; 1C applesauce; 1T glue
1. Mix all the ingredients together. I think mine was probably a little wet, but it all mixes together fairly easily. Wow, Batman sure does look drugged in that picture.
2. Roll it out, ideally to about quarter inch thickness.
All done waiting for them to get up from their “nap.” If nap is what it’s called when they stand up there and yell, “now can I come down?”
Edited to add: Ummmm….. very important thing to do. Make sure you label these as NOT FOOD. Otherwise poor unsuspecting husbands will excitedly think it’s a cookie and eat them. I’ve been told they don’t taste good.
