Cinnamon Ornaments

These are super gift ideas...tree ornaments....little something extra to add to your wrapped gifts....or make a garland out of them....and they smell delicious!!!!!
The recipe calls for a few ingredients:
•4 oz. (or 1 CUP) cinnamon
• 1 TABLESPOON ground cloves
•1 TABLESPOON ground nutmeg
•3/4 CUP applesauce (use cinnamon flavored for extra cinnamon)
•3 TABLESPOONS white glue

You'll also need:
• cookie cutter(s)
•rolling pin
•string/twine/ribbon for hanging
Combine all the ingredients; work with them until smooth.
Divide into 4 portions.
Roll out 1/4" thick & cut out with cookie cutters.
Make a hole in the top for looping ribbon through.
Dry at room temperature for 1-3 days.
Thread with ribbon.

•The dough will seem super sticky, but just keep mixing & stirring.Use a spatula,  to scrape the sides of the bowl & get every bit of dough. The dough will  eventually form into a ball as you stir.

•The ornaments will shrink a tiny bit as they dry.
