Beautiful, fragrant cinnamon ornaments are a fun decoration to make with the kids for any holiday. With only two ingredients, these cinnamon ornaments are easy to make and smell positively heavenly. 



For the dough

  • 1 cup cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tbs applesauce

Other supplies

  • cookie sheet
  • parchment paper
  • rolling pin
  • cookie cutters
  • straw
  • glitter paint (optional)
  • ribbon or twine


In a bowl, mix together the applesauce and cinnamon with a large spoon until it starts to come together to form a dough. When it starts to form a dough, use your hands to shape it into a ball. Divide it into two even balls and put one ball on parchment paper you have liberally sprinkled with cinnamon. Roll the dough ball out with a rolling pin until it is 1/4 inch thick. Then use the cookie cutters to cut into shapes. Once the you’ve cut the dough into shapes, use a straw to poke a hole for your string or ribbon near the top of the dough. Then place the ornaments on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Repeat with the other dough ball until you have used all the dough. Then bake at 200 for 2 and a half hours. Let cool thoroughly. Once cool you can either hang them by threading a ribbon or twine through the hole or you can paint the front with glitter paint and then let them dry and hang them.
