Applesauce Cinnamon Ornaments
So how do you make these fun Applesauce Cinnamon ornaments?In a large bowl, combine cinnamon, applesauce, nutmeg and cloves until well combined and you make a dough.
Sprinkle the surface with a little extra cinnamon to avoid sticking and then knead your dough and roll it into a ball.
Roll out your dough flat and using Christmas cookie cutters, cut out cinnamon shapes and lay them onto the parchment paper.
Using a drinking straw, poke a hole in the ornament where you want the string to go through. Be sure to leave a little bit of space as a buffer at the top so the ornament does not break.
Bake in the oven, low and slow. Once the ornaments are cool, add your ribbon or twine and decorate if you would like!
