1 cup applesauce, 1 cup cinnamon, wax paper, rolling pin, cookie cutters, ribbon for hanging
Let the kids decorate the tree this year with these simple ornaments that smell as good as they look. To make the ornaments: 1) Combine 1 cup applesauce and 1 cup cinnamon in a small bowl until it forms a dough. (If dough is too wet, add a little more cinnamon.) 2) Roll out dough on wax paper to about 3/8 inch thickness. 4) Cut into Christmas shapes using small or medium sized cookie cutters. Make a hole in each for ribbon. 5) Place on a cookie sheet and let air dry 2-3 days. Turn ornaments over periodically so both sides will dry. (Tip: To speed up the drying process, put ornaments in the oven at lowest setting for 3-4 hours.) 6) String with ribbon and hang on Christmas tree. Be careful, though; the ornaments will be quite fragile after drying.
