Cinnamon Applesauce Dough!
This is a
yummy-smelling dough that reminds me of gingerbread. It's
great to make Christmas ornaments out of, or just to make
little ornaments to hang in your kitchen to make it smell
1 part cinnamon
1 part applesauce
*Optional: a bit of nutmeg and/or cloves for extra-yummy smell
Combine ingredients. I used one cup cinnamon and one cup applesauce. If the dough is too moist, add more cinnamon, if it's too dry, add more applesauce. Then roll it 1/4" thick. I found it easiest to sprinkle cinnamon on my counters and on top of the dough, the same way I would sprinkle flour on dough before kneading, in order to minimize sticking.
Cut it with
cookie cutters, then use a straw or skinny paintbrush
handle to make a hole for hanging. Bake in the oven for
about an hour at 200 degrees.
is easy to make as big or small of a batch as you like.
It's great to add on with gift tags on Christmas
presents, and for the kids to make and give themselves.
Who wouldn't want a yummy-smelling gingerbread man???
