  • In a medium bowl, add applesauce and cinnamon and stir until dough forms. If dough is wet, add more ground cinnamon to the mixture until the dough is dry enough to roll out. If the dough is dry, add more applesauce.
  • On a flat surface, roll out dough 1/4-inch thick. Cut out shapes using small cookie cutters. Using a straw, cut out a small hole at the top of the ornament. (To be used to attach a hanger.)
  • Place ornaments on baking sheet and set out at room temperature until hard, overnight. Or preheat oven to 200 degrees. Bake ornaments until hard, about 2 hours. Allow to cool on sheet. Thread a small ribbon or twine through the top of the ornament to create the hanger.


  1. Applesauce: For even more homemade fun in the kitchen, make your own applesauce from scratch.
  2. Yield: The number of ornaments you get out of a batch depends on the size and shape of the ornaments you make. For ornaments about 1 1/2 inches in size, you'll get approximately 24 pieces.
  3. Storage: Store these ornaments with your Christmas decor when not in use (preferably in a cool dark place).
