You will need 1 recipe for each person (makes 4-6 ornaments)

1/2 cup cinnamon
1/2 cup applesauce
cookie cutters

Directions:
Directions:
Mix the applesauce and cinnamon with your hands in a small bowl until you have a stiff ball of dough. Younger children can do their mixing in a ziplock bag.

Roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness on wax paper or parchment. Sprinkle with cinnamon, if needed to roll.

Cut the dough with your favorite cookie cutters: stars, angels, bells, hearts. Make a hole in the top of the ornament for the ribbon--a straw makes the nicest hole.

Allow the ornaments to dry for at least 24 hours.

Thread a piece of ribbon or gold cord through the top to use an a hanger. Ornaments may be painted after then have dried, if you wish. Allow painted ornaments to dry again. Hang them on your tree or door knobs. They will impart a delicious smell to your house.

Personal Notes:
This is a most fun project to do with kids and there is no way to mess it up. We made these Christmas ornaments about 10 years ago and they're still going strong! Just pack them carefully in a large ziplock bag and sprinkle a little cinnamon in there to freshen them up.
