  1. Mix cinnamon, allspice, cloves and nutmeg.
  2. Add applesauce a little at a time.
  3. The consistency should become like playdough.
  4. If the mixture is too dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of additional applesauce.
  5. Roll dough out to a scant ¼-inch thickness on an ungreased surface.
  6. If mixture is sticky, sprinkle working surface with additional cinnamon.
  7. Use sharp edged cookie cutters to cut shapes as desired.
  8. Place on a level surface to dry.
  9. Air dry 4 to 5 days. (Ornaments lighten in color as they dry).


A fine craft or floral wire can be cut in short pieces and bent into a U shape to insert in top of each ornament before drying to serve as a hanger for yarn or ribbon.
