Cinnamon Monsters

You will need:

1 cup cinnamon
1 tablespoon cloves
1 tablespoon nutmeg
1 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons white school glue
4 emu body feathers per winged monster
1 piece of emu tail feather for funky hair on monster
White paint or Liquid paper for the eyes

Mix all ingredients except feathers together until you have a dough.  It will be wet.  Let it sit for 30 minutes.  Roll it out between two layers of wax paper until 1/8" thick.  Using a gingerbread man cookie cutter or a knife, cut out your figures. 

If doing hair for the monster, curve the piece of tail feather around in a circle on top of the head and then press additional dough on top to hold it in place.

Stick the quill end of the feathers into the cinnamon man side for wings.

These can be air-dried for 5 days or you can pop them into a warm (250 degree) oven for 4 to 6 hours, depending on how thick you have made them.  If your figure is very large, the legs may curl so you may want to turn it or put something on it to keep it in place.

After they are dry you can paint them or glue on other decorations.
