Y’all are in for a treat today! It’s the 8th Day of Christmas Ornaments and the Cinnamon Dough Ornaments I’m sharing today are not only easy and kid-friendly to make but smell amazing! Are you enjoying the series so far? I can’t believe we’re up to 96 ornament ideas already!
- 1 cup plus additional ~1/4 cup ground cinnamon
- 1 cup applesauce
- parchment paper
- skewer or straw
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a stand mixer combine 1 cup of cinnamon with 1 cup of applesauce. Mix until totally blended. (FYI 1 cup of cinnamon is one large 4.12 oz container) Dough should be easy to manipulate and not sticky. If yours is too sticky add additional cinnamon.
Lay dough out on parchment paper or baking mat sprinkled generously with cinnamon (just as you’d sprinkle flour down to roll out cookie dough.) Roll the cinnamon dough out to 1/4″ sprinkling with cinnamon as needed to keep it from sticking. By the way, these smell amazing but taste awful. My 6 year old didn’t believe me that they weren’t for eating so I finally let him taste the dough-it was worth it to see the disgust on his face afterwards, sometimes they have to learn on their own right?!
Use a cookie cutter to cut your dough and transfer to a baking sheet. Use a straw or skewer to punch a hole in the ornaments to allow for hanging later.
Bake for 2 hours. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Tie ornaments with twine and hang!
