Melanie's notes for this recipe:
These ornaments smell so good that you'll want to eat them-- but resist. They don't taste very good, I can promise you that. This dough rolls out very easily, and the cinnamon dough ornaments will last for years.

Directions

1
In a medium mixing bowl, combine cinnamon and cloves. Add the applesauce, essential oil, and glue.
2
Knead in bowl for a few minutes, until you have a firm, pliable dough. Add more cinnamon if the dough is too wet, more applesauce if it's too dry.
3
Dust your work surface with cinnamon (just as you would with flour for regular cookies). Roll the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters, or press into a cookie mold. For molds, press dough into mold, smooth with rolling pin, remove, and cut away extra dough.
4
While still moist, cut a hole in the top of each ornament with the end of a straw for hanging. Place ornaments on paper towels and air dry for several days. Carefully flip them several times while drying so they won't bend or warp.
5
In a hurry? Instead of air drying, bake ornaments at 200 degrees F for about 3 hours, turning occasionally.

Decorate!

Melanie, Oh I love these, my son made this in school back in the day. I have never had the recipe and would love to make some for one of my Christmas tree themes. I always put up several trees and these will look great on my kitchen baking and utensil themed tree ! Thank you
