This recipe for Spicy Ornaments, by , is from Angela's Awesome Edibles , one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.



1 C applesauce
1 Ό C ground cinnamon

• Preheat oven: 170Ί
• Using part of the mixture, roll out the dough on waxed paper sprinkled with cinnamon as if you were making
cutout cookies.
• (Keep the dough in the bowl covered so it won’t dry out. If it starts to dry, moisten with dabs of applesauce.)
• Sprinkle the rolling pin with cinnamon to prevent dough from sticking.
• Use gingerbread man or other cookie cutouts to make the ornaments and a drinking straw to cut the hanger
hole in the top of the ornament.
• As you make more ornaments, change the waxed paper before it gets soggy.
• To use the last bit of dough, roll it into a ball and pierce with a florist wire or straightened paper clip.
• The bead can be used with ornaments in a garland.
• Place ornaments on a cookie sheet and bake at 170Ί for one hour. To prevent breaking, keep the ornaments in the oven for 5 hours after turning off the heat.
• Tie ribbons or thread hooks through the ornaments to hang on a tree or wreath.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
1. Several ornaments may be tied with ribbon to make a kitchen garland that will last long after the holidays.
2. Revive a fading fragrance by putting a couple of drops of cinnamon oil on the back of the ornament.
3. Use ornaments that may crack or break as potpourri by putting them in a pot of boiling water for a sweet fragrance in the room.
