Homemade Cinnamon ornaments

LOVE this project!! I ran across it in an old Disney Family Cookbook I have from the 90s. I have a costco-sized cinnamon container so finding 3/4c of cinnamon wasn't any trouble for me. Just a heads up.

1/2c applesauce
3/4c (3oz) of ground cinnamon
2 1/2 TBSP Elmers glue

This will make 5-6 ornaments

Mix together in a bowl

Roll into a ball with plastic wrap and stick in the fridge for at least an hour and up to 2 days.

I dusted my surface with cinnamon so it wouldn't stick and rolled it out to about 1/4 inch thick.

Cut out desired shape with cookie cutter.

We used a straw to make a hole at the top.

I put them on a cooling rack and let them air dry for 2 days in Jaxons closet away from Maley madness. You could try to speed up the drying process by using your oven (set on warm) but since mine runs hot I didn't want to chance them breaking.
