Cinnamon Ornaments

This year I had several people ask me for the Cinnamon ornament recipe, so their kids could make the ornaments as gifts. Well to be honest, I have never made the ornaments, but the people that asked for the recipe- I did find a recipe and got it to them. But in case anyone else is looking for this recipe, here it is:

3/4 cup ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons ground cloves
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup applesauce
craft twine or ribbon

Directions: Blend the dry ingredients together and then stir in the applesauce. It should make a thick paste. Use a rolling pin to roll it out to a 1/4" thickness. Cut it with cookie cutters according to the holiday. Poke a hole through the top, a straw works well. Preheat the oven to 150 and bake ornaments on ungreased cookie sheet for 1 1/2 hours. Let the ornaments cool and then add the ribbon or twine through the hole as a hanger. You can add embellishments with craft paint, buttons & glue, glitter or other small craft items. These are nice ornaments and they could easily be made into pins by gluing a pin back to the back of the ornament and skip the hole at the top of each if you are making a pin.
