    Fauve's Note:

    A wonderful holiday project to do with the young ones. Makes inedible, incredibly fragrant cinnamon "cookie" ornaments. These ornaments also work well as package decorations.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Line a strainer with cheesecloth or paper towels and place over a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Pour applesauce into strainer and let it drain for about 8 hours.
    3. 3
      There will be at least a cup of liquid to drain off (if you're in a hurry, you may eliminate this step, but you will need about 3 or 4 ounces extra cinnamon to get a firm dough) Starting with half of the cinnamon, add to the applesauce and stir until blended.
    4. 4
      Gradually add more cinnamon until dough is stiff enough to roll out.
    5. 5
      You may not need the entire amount of cinnamon called for.
    6. 6
      Place portion of the dough onto a sheet of plastic wrap or wax paper and place another sheet on top of this.
    7. 7
      Use a rolling pin, and roll to 1/4-inch; thickness.
    8. 8
      Peel off the top sheet of plastic wrap.
    9. 9
      Cut into shapes using seasonal cookie cutters.
    10. 10
      Carefully slide a spatula under the cut cookie shapes and carefully place each of these on a baking pan coated with Pam.
    11. 11
      Next, use a toothpick and poke a hole near the top of each shape (for threading with hanging-ribbon later).
    12. 12
      Make sure the hole is big enough to accommodate the ribbon as it will shrink quite a bit during the baking.
    13. 13
      Run the toothpick around the edges of each ornament, smoothing any uneven edges, if necessary.
    14. 14
      Place in 175°F oven for 6 to 8 hours, until firm and dry (your house will smell wonderful during this time!) Remove "cookies" carefully and cool completely.
    15. 15
      You may decorate with glue, glitter, paint, etc. (I prefer these without decoration) Lace with ribbon, tie off at top & hang on tree.

      These turned out so great! I made these with my daughter and her cousin (both are 5) a few days before Christmas and they had so much fun! An important note - cinnamon burns your hands when it's caked on for an extended period of time. We were kneeding the dough with our hands and within a few minutes had to run to the sink and wash it off. So be careful not to let the dough stay on your skin for too long. But they do make pretty ornaments that smell WONDERFUL.
