  • 1 cup cinnamon
  • 1 cup applesauce


  • Mix 1 cup of cinnamon with 1 cup of applesauce.
  • Continue mixing until it starts to form a dough. If you find it too sticky to roll out, sprinkle some cinnamon onto the counter or onto the rolling pin. Take a small amount and use your hands to flatten the dough so that it’s soft without bumps or cracks. You'll want the dough to be about 1/4 inch in thickness.

  • Add a hole at the top of the ornament with a straw, so that you can tie twine onto the ornament for hanging. Then let air dry for 2-3 days. First, let dry on a baking tray on wax paper then transfer to a cookie drying rack the next day so the bottoms will dry out.
