CINNAMON APPLESAUCE ORNAMENTS


I love to post pretty items that were crafted by someone else
and in this instance it is a heart ornament that was
made by my niece Raylee.


When she first explained to me that the ingredients
were cinnamon and applesauce, I was surprised
they could be combined into a dough that would roll out.


I love the color as well as the lovely scent!


While they look good enough to eat ... please don't!

CINNAMON APPLESAUCE ORNAMENTS

heart-shape cookie cutter
red ribbon

1½ cups ground cinnamon
1 cup applesauce
2 tbsp. ground cloves

Mix 1 cup cinnamon and 1cup applesauce in a large mixing bowl.
Stir until thoroughly combined.  Add cloves and remaining cinnamon
and continue to incorporate until mixture is the
consistency of play dough.
If it is too dry, add 1 - 2 tablespoons applesauce; if it is too
wet, add more cinnamon.
Lightly dust surface with cinnamon; roll out to ¼ inch thickness.
Cut with heart shape cookie cutter.
Place close together on parchment lined baking sheet.
Ornaments will not rise.
 Carefully make a hole in each heart with a skewer.
Bake in 200 degree oven for one hour; set aside until
 completely hard and dry.
Tie with a red ribbon.  Enjoy!
