Cinnamon Ornaments

Cinnamon Ornaments (10)

Did you know you could make dough just from cinnamon and applesauce? Nor I, but here’s the perfect dough to craft holiday ornaments, thanks to Travis’s Ranger Rick Jr.. Once the cinnamon is in the oven, your whole house will smell like Christmas!

Travis loved concocting the dough. Simply dump in 1 (2-ounce) jar of cinnamon into a bowl. Careful to pour slowly so you don’t get cinnamon in your face!

Add 4 ounces applesauce, stirring until very well combined.

Turn the dough out onto a cutting board and use a rolling pin to flatten to about 1/4-inch thick.

Travis was so excited we got to use our holiday-shaped cookie cutters for the first time since last Christmas.

He loved selecting which shape to use each time we rolled the dough.

Carefully transfer to a baking sheet.

Use a toothpick to poke a hole in each ornament, then bake at 200 degrees F for 20 minutes.

The instructions says to thread pretty ribbon through the holes, but the toothpick holes were much too small for this. Next time I would punch out holes with a straw. Thinking quickly, we threaded the ornaments onto pipe cleaners, instead.

Thread several onto one pipe cleaner (or ribbon) for a pretty garland, or make singles to hang as ornaments. Either way, these would also be wonderful to give away as gifts!
