You'd never think that you could make ornaments from applesauce and cinnamon... but it actually works! They smell yummy, but I don't suggest eating them!!! I guess you could though! Don't blame me if they taste bad though!!! lol! I just wanted to show you all a good 'ornament' recipe!

Like one of the other reviewers I also had trouble working with the dough. We used 7 tablespoons of applesauce and the dough was very crumbly, didnt want to hold together well at all. Added another tablespoon or so of applesauce and had a dough we could work with. We did end up with about 12 or more ornaments but that will depend on the size of the cookie cutters. One tip, do not roll the dough real thin, the cut outs will be hard to work with. My 11 year old nephew helped me and this was a fun project for both of us.
