Scented applesauce and cinnamon ornaments

 You going to need applesauce and cinnamon for this. Thats it! Oh and some parchment paper and cookie cutters, but everyone has those right?

 Mix together 1/4 cup of cinnamon and 1/4 cup of applesauce. If the dough is too sticky to handle add more cinnamon. If its too dry, add more applesauce. Dump your mixed dough onto a piece of parchment or wax paper so it doesn't stick to your counter.

And flatten the dough, about 1/4 inch thick is perfect. We just folded over the parchment paper and smashed it down. We like the rustic look in our house. But you could use a rolling pin if your fancy like that.

Cut the dough into into shapes of your liking. This takes serious concentration.

But its also super duper fun.

Put them on a paper plate and make a hole in the top of each shape, we used a pencil for ours.  Leave on paper plate and put somewhere high where little people wont mistake them as cookies. Ornaments should be dry and ready to hang in about 4 to 5 days, depending on the thickness.

Enjoy! They smell amazing, and look pretty cute up on that tree. :)


  1. Super cool Chelsie... we might have to try this for their tree. They got their own this year so they don't have an excuse to touch mine. Makes for us all to be happy. :D
