Old Fashioned Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments
Your whole house will smell like Christmas when you make these old fashioned cinnamon applesauce ornaments!
Not only do these two ingredient cinnamon ornaments smell amazing, but they fit the rustic feel of our “farmhouse” Rustic style decor. The kids get to hand make the ornaments, after reading a favorite book, and they match the Christmas theme.
As a child, I made lovely cinnamon clay-like ornaments with my grandmother that when hung on the tree gave the whole room a sweet and spicy scent. To this day, that smell takes me back to my childhood Christmas’.
The best part about these ornaments is that there is only TWO ingredients - cinnamon and applesauce!!
Although you will get a similar outcome, this is NOT a salt dough recipe.
To make this dough you will need to combine your cinnamon and applesauce until it sticks nicely into a dough, doesn't crumble, but not too wet.
I recommend add your applesauce one tablespoon at a time until the correct consistency is reached.
Roll out your dough 1/4" to 1/3" thick. Doing this between two sheets one waxed paper will ensure it rolls nicely and doesn't stick to your rolling pin.
Cut your dough using cookie cutters of your choice and place them on a baking sheet.
Place a small hole in the tops of your cut out shapes to make room for a string. Bake your ornaments on 250* until they are hardened.
Remove from the oven and allow them to fully cool. Add a piece of ribbon or string to hang them on your tree - or make a beautiful scented garland!

Linda Sikut on Dec 10, 2017Oh Rachael, I am planning to make cinnamon ornaments with my grandkids in 2 days. I was going to use the recipe that didn't have apple sauce. I need to run to the grocery store tomorrow to get some applesauce! I have home-canned apples, but they might be too juicy to if I mash them into applesauce. I'm really excited that you posted this. Thank you!
