Cinnamon Ornaments

Do you have applesauce? Do you have Cinnamon? That's all you need to make these ornaments....and they smell delicious!!

The original recipe came from here

 Here is how I made it...

1. Mix applesauce and cinnamon in small bowl until a smooth ball of dough is formed. (You may need use your hands to incorporate all of the cinnamon.)  roll dough to 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. (I used wax paper) Peel off top sheet of wax paper. Cut dough into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Make a hole at top of ornament with drinking straw or skewer.

2.  to dry ornaments at room temperature, allow them to sit on the wax paper for a few hours and turn. after a few more hours carefully place them on wire rack. Let stand 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally.

3. Insert ribbon through holes and tie to hang. Decorate with opaque paint markers, found in arts and crafts stores, if desired. (I used puffy paint)


Hang them on the tree or on a gift! I made a batch of these 4 years ago and every year when we take out our Christmas box, these are the first things we smell!! They keep their sent!
