"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

1 1/2 c. ground Cinnamon
1 c. Applesauce
1/3 c. white School glue (like Elmer's)
1 medium sized Bowl
Flat surface for kneading
Wax paper
Rolling pin
Cookie cutters - various types
Non-stick cooling rack
Puffy paints, optional

Mix cinnamon, applesauce, and glue together in a bowl. Remove from the bowl and knead the mixture until it turns into a firm clay. Let sit for about 30 minutes. Clay is best used at room temperature. You may need to dust your rolling pin, hands, or working surface with cinnamon, or use wax paper as a working surface. Roll out clay with a rolling pin to approximately 1/8 of an inch thick. Use cutters to cut out desired shapes. If you are going to hang your shape, use a straw to cut out a hole near the top of the shape. Place shapes on a non stick cooling rack or wax paper. You will need to keep an eye on them and turn them over occasionally so that they dry evenly and dry flat.
Dry shapes for approximately 5 days. When dry you may put a ribbon through the hole for hanging on the tree or adding to a package. You may add puffy paint to decorate your shapes, if you wish.
