  • 1 C smooth applesauce
  • 1 1/4 C ground cinnamon


  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, mix together cinnamon and applesauce until a smooth ball forms. Dough should not be sticky. It should be moist and easy to handle. If necessary, adjust cinnamon or applesauce until easy to handle.  
  • Divide dough into two equal parts, shape into discs. Optionally, chill for an hour or longer. Chilled dough will become slightly firmer and easier to handle. 
  • Preheat oven to 200°F. Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper. 
  • Sprinkle work surface well with cinnamon. Place one disc of dough down on cinnamon coated surface, sprinkle top with cinnamon and roll to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut using desired cookie cutters. Use a regular sized straw to carefully remove a hole, this will be where the string goes later. Transfer to prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough. 
  • Scraps of dough may be re-rolled for additional ornaments. 
  • Bake ornaments for 2 hours or until completely firm. 
  • Cool completely. Thread string or ribbon through ornament holes. 
  • Ornaments can be hung on trees, around the house for a pop of cinnamon or added to gift packaging. 


Dough will make roughly 2 dozen 3-inch ornaments.
