Applesauce & Cinnamon Ornaments Smell So Good!

Over the weekend I decided to try my hand at some Applesauce Ornaments. I remember my aunt making these when I was younger and attaching them to the ribbons and bows of our presents. The dough is simply equal parts of applesauce to cinnamon. Roll it out, cut with cookie cutters, dry and hang. A great little activity for the family.

Applesauce star ornaments hung as an accent on this indoor display.

They smell so good. However, they don't taste so good. I did try a nibble of the dough and the cinnamon is very overpowering (obviously). Can you blame me? They look like cookies!

Anyway, my little ornament tree which usually displays wooden ornaments from my childhood is being used to display the completed "cinna-ornaments" as I've been calling them. I really like how they look on this tree, not to mention the great fragrance this little display gives off.

Some music note ornaments hung on the "Charlie Brown" tree . . . a sapling I rescued.

I'd say give em a try if you never have before. Here are the steps I used to make these easy applesauce ornaments.
