Cinnamon Ornaments

My mom made these every once in a while for Christmas to use as ornaments on the tree. They don’t spoil (as long as you don’t get them wet) and they smell great! I’ve made these a few times to put on the top of Christmas presents…they add a nice odorous addition.  These aren't really edible, but I guess you could eat them if you really wanted too, they just wouldn't taste too good.

  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup cinnamon
Mix together. Add more cinnamon or flour if too sticky. Roll dough until 1/4” thick. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Use a straw to make a hole in the top so you can hang it later. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 225° oven for 1 1/2 hours. Let cool. Tie a ribbon/string through hole for hanging (or put ornament hook on). Can decorate with puffy paint or glue decorations on if desired.
