- 1 part cinnamon
- 1 part applesauce
- Splash of nutmeg, cloves or ginger
Mix ingredients until it is a firm dough. If too try and crumbly, add more applesauce. If too moist, add more cinnamon or nutmeg. Roll out on a cinnamon-dusted board, rolling 1/4 to 1/8 inch thick.If the dough is really sticky, you can roll it out between 2 sheets of plastic wrap.
Use cookie cutters to make your ornament shapes. Using a pencil, straw, or skewer, make a small hole near the top for ribbon or string to hang the ornament with, and set aside until dry.
They may take a few days to a week to dry. (Some recipes say to bake them in a 200 degree oven for 2 to 2 1/2 hours and then allow them to thoroughly dry, but others don’t. Use your best judgment on that.) As they are drying, turn them occasionally.
Note: You can also make tiny balls with this recipe to use in scented sachets. Extra dough may be placed in plastic bag for later use.
