Holiday Cheer from R&B: Jennifer

jenchristmasAre you one of those people that love the smell of cinnamon?  There is nothing that reminds me more of the holidays then the sweet and spicy scent of cinnamon.  Every year when my kids were little we enjoyed making Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments.  There are only a few ingredients needed and it’s a fun and crafty project that just about anyone can do.  Not only do they smell wonderful but they can become a great gift to share with family and friends. 


How to Make Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments

2 cups of applesauce

2 cups of cinnamon

Cookie Cutters (of your season of choice)


Mix applesauce and cinnamon together, adding more cinnamon if dough seems too wet, and more applesauce if dough is too dry.


Sprinkle countertop with cinnamon, and then roll dough out to ¼ inch thick.  Cut with cookie cutter, and place ornaments on the baking sheet.  Reroll scraps to make more ornaments.


Let ornaments dry on baking sheets for several days, or until completely dry.  Alternatively, bake in a 200 degree F over for 2.5 hours.


If desired lightly sand edges to smooth any rough spots.
