This is a really great Christmas gift for coworkers or classmates. They smell edible and look great hanging from a tree or a gift. Get creative and use different cookie cutting shapes. Very versatile for Valentines day, just use pink ribbon!

    Gather your supplies ladies!

  • How to make a cinnamon ornament. Cinnamon Ornaments - Step 2
    Step 2

    Mix 1 cup cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg (optional), 1 tsp cloves (also optional), 1 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup of glue.
    Refrigerate mixture for an hour so that it will be more manageable to work with.

    Step 3

    Roll dough out about 1/4" in thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out cute shapes. To make holes to put the ribbon through, use a drinking straw.

  • Step 4

    Place cookies on a tinfoil covered cookie sheet and bake for 2 hours at 200 degrees. Flip over 1/2 way through.
    This makes your house/apartment smell AMAZING.

    Alternatively you could let them air dry, flipping every 12 hours but that takes much longer and I'm just not that patient!
