Apple Cinnamon Ornaments

Apple Cinnamon Ornaments

2 C cinnamon
1 ½ C applesauce

1. Mix cinnamon and 1 C applesauce, keep adding applesauce until it becomes like a dough.
**Keep unused dough in a sealed plastic bag to stay moist. **
2. Put dough on wax paper.
3. Roll ¼ inch thick.
4. Cut out desired shape (cookie cutters work great)
5 Poke small hole in top to put thread or hanger thru.
6. Using a spatula set shape on a rack away from heat to dry. Turn with spatula several times a day. It takes approximately 5 days to dry.

They are really fun to make in the shape of hearts and give as Valentines. 


And to use as decoration around the home. 

Here is one above my fridge:

Here are a few star shaped ones in a bowl with some of the soap I have made:

And another heart in my dining room paired with a stick my son carved for me when he was young:


On my kitchen counter I have an old canning jar that I have placed some of these in along with a set of white lights. After the lights have warmed up (in about 15 minutes) my kitchen smells like an apple pie is baking- I made these over a year ago and they still smell wonderful!
