How to Make Cinnamon Scented Christmas Ornaments

Not too long ago, one of my friends was talking to me about some Christmas ornaments she and her granddaughter made together.  They made the ornaments out of applesauce and ground cinnamon, which surprised me.  I had no idea ornaments could be made that way!  (What rock do I live under?)  As proof, she sent me her recipe and the photos in this post.  She gave me permission to share her 'secret recipe' on my blog.  Read on to learn this 'secret recipe' so you can try making them too!

Directions

  1. Combine the applesauce and cinnamon into a medium bowl.  Mix until a dough forms.  Add additional cinnamon if the dough becomes tacky.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200F degrees.
  3. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  4. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness.  (Cinnamon can be used instead of flour!)
  5. Use cookie cutters to cut fun Christmas shapes out of the dough.  Then place these raw ornaments onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  6. Pierce a hole at the top of each raw ornament.
  7. Bake the ornaments for 2 or 3 hours or until completely dry.
  8. Once the ornaments are removed from the oven and given a chance to cool completely, use non-toxic tempera paint to decorate them.  
  9. Add the string and any embellishments you'd like.
NOTE: Although ornaments are non-toxic... they are not meant to be eaten!
