Cinnamon-Scented Cookies
These fragrant cookies smell yummy, but—though nontoxic—they are not good for snacking.

You will need:

• 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 cup salt
• 1/2 cup ground cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon oil (increase amount for more fragrant cookies more)
• 1 cup water
• Parchment paper or silicone mat

Mix dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add water gradually and stir continuously until completely absorbed. Knead for a few minutes. Chill, covered, for 1 to 2 hours in the refrigerator before proceeding.
