Unfortunately, these little delicacies are not edible ... but they sure do smell good :)
Here's the recipe: Yields 60 - 3" ornaments
2 Cups of Applesauce
1 Cup of ground Cinnamon
Mix together to form a dough. Roll out on a floured board. Cut with a cookie cutter. Place on a lightly greased cooking sheet. Use a straw to make a hole for hanging. Bake 200 degrees for 2-1/2 hours until firm and dry.
Now the fun part begins ... painting them and stringing them for the Christmas tree. So far I only have 16 of them painted... but I'll get them done. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to string them with red ribbon or curly wire... maybe both. Also, whether or not I'm going to hang them individually or possibly make a garland out of them. They would also be cute tied on a gift.
No matter how I end up using them ~ I'm happy with the progress so far and my house smells like Christmas!
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
