Those of you who know me know I am not crafty, but I wanted to do a few homemade things with the boys for the holiday’s and I found this EXTREMELY easy and safe craft that they loved making – cinnamon Christmas ornaments.
What do you need you ask? Simple – two big jars of inexpensive cinnamon (I used 2.37 oz. bottles) and applesauce. That’s it. Pour the cinnamon into a mixing bowl (I used a stand mixer) and spoon in a bit of the applesauce. Turn the mixer on to the lowest setting (trust me on that one) and mix slowly. Add a bit more applesauce until you achieve a doughy consistency. Shape into a ball and roll out on a lightly floured surface. Break out the cookie cutters and go to town. Use a straw to add the hole for the ribbon. Transfer to a cookie sheet and bake at 200 for a couple hours – oh, and added bonus, the house smells amazing while you’re doing this.
Merry Christmas everyone!
