Cinnamon applesauce ornaments

We love making these deliciously smelling, and slightly messy ornaments.

Here is the whole gang...

Lydia could not resist the smell...

Cinnamon applesauce ornaments

1c cinnamon
3/4 c applesauce
1T allspice
1T cloves
1T ginger

the allspice, cloves and ginger are purely for smell, so feel free to replace them with cinnamon, double up on your favorite, substitute or whatever...

Mix together well. If necessary use more cinnamon (or flour) to make the dough not quite so sticky. Roll them (about 1/4 in thick) out and cut them, don't forget to use a straw or pencil to make a whole for a ribbon to go through (if you do forget hot glue guns can also attach ribbon to hang them ). You can dry them on the pan, but they smell REALLY good if you bake them at 200 for about 1.5 hours (depending on how thick they are).

That sounds fun! I wish I could smell it right now. Is it really a whole cup of cinnamon? Wow! I may have to try it, if I feel like dealing with the mess I see in your pics. :-) Tami
