Cinnamon Ornaments


  • 1 Cup Cinnamon
  • 3/4 Cup Applesauce
  • 2 Tbsp Regular School Glue


  • Mix ingredients together until it's the consistency of a cookie dough. (If it seems too dry, add a bit more applesauce; if too wet, add more cinnamon)
  • Mix in your school glue. I like to sprinkle cinnamon on my counters like I would flour, and then roll out with a rolling pin.
  • You'll want your dough to be thick - but not too thick that it is unable to be worked with.
  • Cut out your shapes with your favorite cookie cutter. (We like to use Gingerbread men!). You can also make a small hole at the top - that way you can run a ribbon or ornament hanger through to hang on your tree.
  • Place on a cooking rack and dry about 48 hours. You can then either paint them or leave them plain. If you have a food dehydrator, you can use that as well (simply cook for about 8 hours).
