Cinnamon Ornaments:

Ingredients:

3/4 – 1 cup apple sauce (depends on if chunky or not – start with 3/4 and stir in more if needed)
1 cup cup ground cinnamon

Directions:

Mix together applesauce and cinnamon, knead and then roll out with a rolling pin (it will form a dough).  You can sprinkle with cinnamon when rolling out if too moist. Then cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Make a hole in the top of the ornament with a straw. Let ornaments dry.  Add a ribbon after it dries and use it as an ornament or present tag.  We like to keep them from year to year in a box layered between tissue paper.

You can place plastic wrap between the dough while forming a dough ball.  This makes for less mess!  Bake the ornaments on 200 degrees for 2 1/2 hours to harden the dough.  This also makes your house smell amazing!  I love to make these before we have company.

    I made these during the fall to add to my tree and they are super simple and super smelly. They are adorable.

  2. So it’s only two ingredients? Nothing else needed> How cool!

  3. How do you roll out just applesauce and cinnamon? I keep rereading to see if I’m missing something.

      You just knead it and then roll it out with a rolling pin.

      i didn’t get it either until i read the directions for like the 10th time. lol if you’re using 1 full cup of cinnamon and equal part (1 cup) of applesauce…. i’m going to assume that it forms some sort of “dough” like consistancy.

      i agree that these directions were pretty vague if you’ve never tried to make them before. lol regardless, i think i will try it. love the smell of cinnamon and apples. :)

    Just found a recipe for exact same thing this morning to try with my kiddos…. only difference the other one says use 2 Tablespoons of tacky glue, nutmeg and cloves. Think this one sounds alot easier. Thanks for posting! =)

  5. You can use glue but I prefer it to be edible – just in case :-)

  6. Oh thank you! My daughter brought one of the home from school. When I asked for the “recipe”, I got shrugging shoulders. ;-)

    It’s amazing how great these smell. Can’t wait to make some. :-)

  7. I used a dehydrator for these. Also store in baggies for next year.

  8. I did these for the first time last year….love them! Easy, kids could do them too, and they smell sooo good. thx
