DIY: Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments
Cinnamon and applesauce. That is all you need to make these easy Christmas ornaments that smell oh-so-good. Hang them on the tree, around the house, or attach to a present. You can use these anywhere you want a scented, festive pop.
What You Need:
1 1/4 cup ground cinnamon
1 cup smooth applesauce
Ribbon or twine
Whole cloves (optional)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine the cinnamon and applesauce with a spoon or spatula until a dough forms. Knead a few times with your hands. Dough should be moist and smooth, not sticky.
Shape into a ball, and chill in the refrigerator for one hour.
Sprinkle a little cinnamon on your working surface. With a rolling pin, roll dough out to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut desired shapes with cookie cutters. Use a straw or dowel to make a small hole in each shape to hang it. Decorate with cloves, if desired.
Bake ornaments on a parchment lined baking sheet for two hours, or until completely firm.
Let ornaments cool completely, then thread ribbon or twine through the hole to hang them.
