Applesauce & Cinnamon Ornaments

Easy Applesauce and Cinnamon Ornaments

Here's what you need........for about 20 ornaments
  • 2 foil lined cookie sheets- lightly oiled
  • rolling pin
  • cookie cutters
  • mixing bowl & spoon
  • applesauce  (about 12 ounces)
  • cinnamon ( about 6 ounces)
  • soda straw
  • craft glue
  • ornament hangers
  • ribbon, string, or cloth strips for hanging 
Mix the applesauce and cinnamon together.  Stir carefully or you'll smell cinnanon for the nest three days!  It should be stiff and not too sticky.

Dust cookie sheet with cimmanon.  Roll to desired thickness. Dusting often with cinnamon.  Cut out shapes and peel away excess dough.  (Thin cookies have a dendency to curl).  Leave ornaments on cookie sheet to dry.

If you want your ornaments to have hanging holes, cut out with straw while soft.

When ornaments are dry on the top, carefully peel away reynolds wrap and place on cooling rack to expedite the drying process.  They dry rock hard.

If you didn't make hanging holes, glue ornament hanger to the back of your ornaments. I've shown a couple of different ways to glue them on.

You can use ribbon, string, or strips of cloth to hang your ornaments. 

How easy is that?  They smell good too!
