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.

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

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!

How to Make Applesauce Dough Cinnamon Ornament Recipe

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a medium mixing bowl, combine cinnamon and cloves. Add the applesauce, essential oil, and glue.
  • 2Knead 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.
  • 3Dust 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.
  • 4While 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.
  • 5In a hurry? Instead of air drying, bake ornaments at 200 degrees F for about 3 hours, turning occasionally.

    Decorate!
