Applesauce Cinnamon Ornaments...

JUST as children like to do... I, myself enjoys the season, cutting GINGERBREAD girls & boys out as well, here I've used a VINTAGE GINGERBREAD cookie cutter, placing the 'X' in the dough before baking.  This APPLESAUCE CINNAMON dough has been a favorite of mine for years now along with the SALT DOUGH, that I will share another time. 

Not only use these ornaments on the tree... tie them on your favorite packages OR place them on wreaths, garlands, etc.

And the children will have a GRAND time rolling in this fragrant dough...
Here is the recipe I have used for years... there are alot out there & some may vary, some allow them to air dry OR bake in an oven, it's your preference... BUT I love the added aroma to my home during the baking process.

1/2 cup CINNAMON
Blend the '2' ingredients together to make a dough, should have the consistency of a cookie dough. Roll out... hopefully the dough will roll without cracking, if it's dry... just add more APPLESAUCE, but only a TBLS at a time. Roll to thickness desired, around 1/4", use CINNAMON to keep the dough from sticking to surface. Once rolled out start cutting into shapes with COOKIE CUTTERS, using a straw OR toothpick for making holes for the hanging.
Place ornaments onto a baking sheet with cookie spatula, BAKE at 200 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Check frequently, depending on thickness that will determine the time your GINGERBREAD spend in the oven. Remove to a cooling rack. Then you are ready to add ribbon, string OR jute for tying OR hanging.

ENJOY my friends... NOW go turn on the Christmas music, tie on an apron & begin to make MEMORIES for years to come.
