Cinnamon Christmas Ornaments

(just sorta slipping this in here....the above recipe is the same as one on this list BUT thought the variations would "fit" too! Have fun!)
Recipe 1:
The recipe that I use is

  • 1/2 cup ground cinnamon,
  • 1/3 cup applesauce, and
  • 1 Tbs. Tacky glue
Mix in bowl and stir until well blended. Work mixture in hands for three minutes to form a ball. If it is too dry, add applesauce, if too wet, add more cinnamon. Knead ball on cinnamon-sprinkled surface until it holds togehter well. I roll this out and use cookie cutters for the shapes. I also use a drinking straw to cut a hanging hole. These can be air dried for 24 to 48 hours. Turn several times. They can also be baked in a slow oven.
Recipe 2:

  • 1 lb. powdered cinnamon
  • 3/4 c. applesauce
  • 1/8 c. orris root powder (optional)
  • 1/8 oz. apple fragrance (optional)
Add scent to the orris root and mix well. Combine with the cinnamon powder and add the applesauce. Add a tiny bit of apple cider if it's too dry, or more cinnamon if too wet. Roll out no thinner than 1/4" and cut out shapes. Use a straw to cut a hole at the top if making a hanging ornament. Dry in a dehydrator or air-dry. Let dry thoroughly and sand the rough edges with a fingernail file and paint with fabric paints.
Recipe 3:

  • 1-4 oz. can of cinnamon
  • 1 T. cloves
  • 1 T. nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 T. white glue

Mix dry ingredients and add to wet ingredients Mix thoroughly. Roll out and cut shapes. Let dry several days, turning over frequently. Do not eat!!!
Recipe 4:

  • 1 c. cinnamon
  • 1 t. nutmeg
  • 1 t. allspice
  • 1 t. ground cloves
  • 1 c. applesauce

Combine dry ingredients. Add applesauce a little at a time, mixing thoroughly. Roll out and cut shapes. Allow to dry 4-5 days. Paint after completely dry.
Recipe 5:

  • 1 Cup Cinnamon
  • 1T Cloves
  • 1T Nutmeg
  • 3/4 C Applesauce
  • 2T White glue
combine cinnamon, cloves & nutmeg. Add applesauce & glue, stir to combine, work mixture with hands for 2-3 minutes. Divide into 4 parts. Roll each to 1/4" thickness. Use straw or toothpick for hole. Place on wire rack & allow to dry at room temp. Turn after a day. (takes about 2 days to dry). I use white fabric paint to decorate, looks like frosting.
