Weekly Pinterest Project: Week 20-Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments

Welcome to the 20th week of my Pinterest project, where I try out one of the zillion pins I have on my Pinterest boards, ha!

Will and I (and Harper!) made some cinnamon applesauce ornaments. It was a super easy recipe-mix one cup of cinnamon with three fourths a cup of applesauce and combine to form a ball.

Organize and sort cookie cutters, ha!

Talk to Mimi on the phone while waiting for mommy to stir the applesauce and cinnamon…

Once the mixture has formed into a ball, place it on a cookie sheet between two pieces of wax paper and roll out to approximately 1/4 inch thick.

Take off top layer and press cookie cutters into dough. Switch over to parchment paper after trying unsuccessfully to get the cookies onto the baking sheet. Poke holes into ornaments with a straw.

Bake at 200 degrees for approximately two to two and a half hours.

Thread red ribbon through baked ornaments and attach to Christmas cards as a way to make them fancy:) (These were the Christmas gifts we gave our babysitters-pictures of the kiddos from our fall photo session, a gift certificate, and these wonderful smelling ornaments)

We enjoyed making these ornaments but most of them ended up cracking while baking and had to be thrown away:( Next year, we will make a different type of ornament.

  1. Oh Aria and I did these last year too! But, my recipe called for glue and we had no cracking…maybe look into that addition next year and it will be a better result. I thought these were something I could put her handprint on, but the dough was way too firm for that…although I tried ha. Maybe we will just do cookie cutters next time.
