Spending several months on the west coast and being close to our grandchildren has been wonderful! I love that they enjoy helping in the kitchen and I thought that making homemade cinnamon applesauce ornaments would be a wonderful craft to do with my granddaughter.
These ornaments smell wonderful and there is still time to make them before Christmas!
Just mix 1 ½ cups of cinnamon with 1 cup of applesauce to make your dough.
Place the dough between two pieces of waxed paper and roll out with your rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thickness. I found slightly thicker worked better. Peel off the top piece of wax paper and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Add a small hole at the top of each shape with a straw or skewer and let them dry over night, or until they are completely hard. You could also put them in a 150-degree oven to speed up the drying process. Place them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
When cool thread a ribbon through the small hole to hang.
My granddaughter was thrilled to wrap her ornaments to put under the tree for gift giving!
Such a fun morning, can’t wait until our next craft day!
