    Star Yule/CHRISTMAS Cinnamon Ornaments


    3/4 c Applesauce
    2 T. white glue
    1 oz Cinnamon
    1 oz Grd. cloves
    1 oz Grd. nutmeg
    1 oz Grd. ginger
    Cinnamon for cutting rolling out dough
    cookie cutters

    In a medium bowl, stir together the cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and ginger. Mix in the applesauce and glue. Work the mixture with your hands 2 to 3 minutes to form a ball. If mixture is too wet, add more cinnamon. If mixture is too dry, add more applesauce.

    Lightly dust a clean surface with cinnamon. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters, and use a toothpick to make a hole at the top for hanging with a ribbon.

    Dry in a slow oven 200 degrees F (100 degrees C) for several hours, or air dry in a sunny spot for 4 or 5 days. When dry, decorate with gingham and/ or ribbon.

    Default Re: Yule/CHRISTMAS Cinnamon Ornaments

    I made these once, a long time ago when my children were much younger! My recipe didn't call for the glue or extra spices other than cinnamon. The scent lasted for the entire holiday season, too. I should try these again this year with my grandchildren.
    I am SO looking forward to "empty-nest syndrome"!
