  • 1 1/2 cups of ground cinnamon
    1 cup of applesauce
    1/4 cup white glue (elmers)
    Mix together in a bowl. knead well, put back in bowl let sit on counter for 30min.covered with plastic wrap. then knead again. Remove from bowl roll out to 1/4 " thick and cut shapes with cookie cutters.
    place on wax paper to dry (make take 3-5 days) turn them over 3-4 X a day to help keep edges from curling up as they dry. the ornaments will shrink some as they dry. Be sure to poke the holes in the ornaments (for hanging ) before they dry, I use a toothpick You can also paint them after they dry if you want to. I use puffy paints to add a little something extra to them. There are lots of recipes out there for these.
