Cinnamon Christmas Ornaments with 2 Ingredients

December 1st, 2016 Posted in Lifestyle
The Cinnamon Christmas Ornaments will come out of the ornament box this year still smelling fabulous again.  Every year, I enjoy their scent and love making more.  I get just as excited about these ornaments as I do about our Keepsake Handprint Ornaments (click here).  I’m always so happy when they survive year to year.christmas-cinnamon-ornaments-568x600

Recipe and Supplies

  • applesauce  – 1 cup
  • cinnamon – 1.5 cups
  • Cookie cutters (we found that smaller cookie cutters work best)
  • Straw (to make the hole)
  • plastic wrap
  • rolling pin
  • ribbon

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.  Mix cinnamon and applesauce in a small bowl.  Add 1 cup of cinnamon first, mix, and then add the last half cup.  Use your hands to get the cinnamon fully incorporated into the dough.
  2. Take a handful of dough and roll it between two sheets of plastic wrap.  Peel off the top sheet and then cut the dough with cookie cutters.
  3. Make a hole at the top of the ornament with a drinking straw.
  4. Bake 2.5 hours.  Cool on wire rack.  You can also dry ornaments at room temperature for 1-2 days.
  5. Decorate with ribbon and hang.  Some children enjoy puffy paints or sequins to further dress up their ornaments.

I remember making them when I was a child.  This recipe doesn’t make a ton of ornaments, but I had at least 30 small hearts and a variety of different larger ones as well.  My kitchen smelled wonderful and my husband thought they looked good enough to eat… glad he didn’t try it!Save this easy 2-ingredient recipe for the rainy, snowy, wintery-mix kind of days.  You’ll be happy you had the ingredients on hand.

The ornaments make a great garland too.  (above)
