      I’ve thought about how these ornaments were made. Seen them at the craft shows. But then forgot about them till I seen them again.

      Thanks I have time on my hands as you know Lynn, I’ll have to make these.

      Im confussed? Do you have to use flour to make the actual dough or does all the combine make a dough as well. also do these need to be glazed to peserve or are they eatable as well.

      Crystal, you use this for a nice smell for the holidays. They are only used as ornaments. The spices and applesauce will make a dough.

      Then they dry in the oven. If you want to keep them long term you have to wrap very carefully for storage but sometimes they do attract the mice in storage. HTH

      I highly advise wearing gloves while making these. If your skin is sensitive to cinnamon (and you won’t know it till it’s too late, trust me!), you will have a painful, burning, swollen hand after handling the dough. I speak from experience here.

      Wear the gloves. Make the ornaments, because they smell soooooo good, but protect your skin. It took me two days to get rid of the red and the burning and swelling in my hands!

      No, this was several years ago. It was the first time I made these ornaments, and I didn’t even think about it. I just made them, and kneaded the dough with my hands because it got too thick for the spoon.

      Since then, I always wear gloves when handling the dough. 🙂

      These are really easy to make and can be made cheaply buy purchasing cinnamon in bulk from health food/whole food stores or even online at amazon- they currently have 2 pound bulk packages of cinnamon powder for $10.96 that’s ALOT of ornaments!

      If I use regular size Christmas cookie cutters, does anybody have an idea approximately how many per batch in this recipe?
