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

How to Make Applesauce Dough Cinnamon Ornament Recipe

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!
