- 3 cups (25 oz. jar) of unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup ground cinnamon
- ½ cup ground clove
- ½ cup ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon corn starch (or non-toxic school glue)
Pour applesauce into a sieve and place over a bowl. Drain overnight. Mix together ingredients and roll out dough on adding more cinnamon if needed to roll out dough without it sticking to your work surface.
The ornaments will take about 4 days to dry completely depending on their thickness. You should plan to turn them over a couple of times or the edges will curl. (The thicker they are the longer it takes for them to dry, but the less they will curl.) Don't be surprised if the ornaments shrink a bit during the drying process. You may wish to keep this in mind when picking out the cookie cutters for your designs.
When dry, thread a piece of ribbon or yarn through the hole to hang. Enjoy the wonderful scent all season long.
