Cinnamon Scented Salt Hearts

I love the aroma of cinnamon.  Is there anyone that does not?  Today I am making some cinnamon scented salt aroma discs in the shape of hearts for a couple of room air freshener projects.  I wish you could experience the aroma of cinnamon filling my home from baking these cinnamon scented hearts.  With family arriving home soon, they may be giddy with delight expecting cinnamon rolls to match the aroma filling the rooms here : )
So here we go, simple, easy peasy how-to make
Cinnamon Scented Salt Hearts.
Start with 1 cup all purpose flour in your mixing bowl and 1/2 cup salt. 
Blend together with 1/2 - 3/4 cup water.

Time for the aroma of cinnamon to be added to the mix.  I used 1/4 cup.

Mix it all together.

Dust counter with cinnamon to roll out dough.

Cut out hearts.

Bake @325 degrees for 1/2 hour.

Project #1
Mount birch bark to dollar store frame.

Add fresh baked hearts to bark. 
I am adding you & me with a fine line marker to the large heart and hanging on the wall of my entry.

Pine cones and cinnamon scented salt hearts as my living room potpourri.
Can't go wrong with cinnamon scenting the house, can you....
