  • 1 cup ground cinnamon plus extra for rolling out dough
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. ground cloves
  • Also needed: Christmas cookie cutters, a drinking straw, ribbon or twine


  • Preheat oven to 200f degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
  • Mix well until combined and a dough begins to form.
  • Sprinkle your counter (or a large sheet of parchment paper) with extra cinnamon to avoid batter from sticking when you roll the dough out.
  • Place dough mixture onto the surface and knead the dough, then roll it into a ball.
  • Roll the dough flat, about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Using your favorite Christmas cookie cutters, cut out cinnamon shapes.
  • Lay them onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Using a drinking straw, poke a hole in the ornament where you want the string to go through. Leave a little bit of space as a buffer so the ornament does not break at the top.
  • Bake in the oven for 2 hours. Let the ornament cool, add some ribbon or twine to your ornament and hang for some amazing smelling ornaments.
  • Makes 4-6 ornaments (depending on how large your cookie cutters are)
