How to Make Cinnamon Ornaments - Only 3 Ingredients!
  • 1 cup ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup apple sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white glue
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Stir together with a spoon. If the dough is too dry, add more apple sauce. If it's too wet, add more cinnamon.
  2. When it's too hard to stir, use your hands to kneed the dough into a ball.
  3. Press the dough onto the counter using your hands to flatten it. Use a rolling pin to smooth out the surface. Use your hands to press in the edges and reshape the dough.
  4. Continue flattening/rolling the dough until it's about ¼" to ½" thick.
  5. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes, then place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  6. Use a drinking straw to cut a hole in each shape.
  7. Bake at 225F for 2 to 3 hours until they are solid and dry, flipping half way through. If the edges are curling up, flip the shapes a second time and continue baking another 20 to 30 minutes (so they end up right side up when you're done) and they should flatten out.
Makes 10 to 12 shapes using standard cookie cutters.
