DIRECTIONS

  • Combine applesauce and gelatin in small saucepan and let stand for 3 minutes. Heat over medium heat stirring constantly just until simmering.
  • Combine cinnamon, cornstarch (starting with 1/3 cup and add as you need to form a dough to roll), cloves and lemon zest in separate bowl. Stir in applesauce mixture.
  • Turn out onto counter and knead a few turns. Divide dough in half and wrap each half in plastic wrap or place in a zip lock bag. Use within 30 minutes. Roll dough between sheets of plastic wrap or a dusted (with cinnamon or flour) surface and rolling pin to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out ornaments using 2-inch cookie cutters. Use a straw or plain pastry tip to cut out holes for ribbon to hang. Dry on wire rack overnight turning occasionally. Can take several days depending on humidity.
  • Re-roll scraps and repeat cutting and drying as directed.
  • Have fun and get the kiddies involved!
