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.

Ingredients

1 c
ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp
ground cloves
3/4 c
applesauce, unsweetened
1 tsp
essential oil (your choice)
2 Tbsp
white craft glue cookie cutters or molds
straws
decorating materials
TIP: USE THE ESSENTIAL OIL OF YOUR CHOICE. TRY CINNAMON TO BRING OUT THE CINNAMON SCENT, OR APPLE TO MAKE APPLE-CINNAMON SCENTED CINNAMON ORNAMENTS. VANILLA-CINNAMON IS NICE, TOO!

Directions Step-By-Step

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!

Ann, Look in your local grocery store , they should carry it. I find it where the extract flavorings are usually found. Ask your store Manager , I bet he has it ! Good luck.

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
