    :gingerbread: NON-EDIBLE applesauce cinnamon ornaments

    I make these every 2 yrs to hang on garland, gifts, the tree and the smell lasts forever. What holds them together is a 1tsp of elmers glue..
    ***They are NON EDIBLE! But the glue isn't dangerous so if any lil ones take a bite out of curiousity. no worries!



    1/4 cup applesauce 1/4 cup cinnamon 1 Tsp. white glue

    Pour all ingredients in a plastic zip bag.

    seal the bag and knead until a dough is formed

    **(if dough is too wet and sticky add a little more cinnamon)

    Roll dough out on a cutting board or counter sprinkled with cinnamon (to prevent sticking.)

    Cut shapes with cookie cutters and make hanging holes using a drinking straw.

    Let ornaments air dry a few days in a warm dry area,

    It's important to be sure that you flip them over a few times each day to ensure they lay flat.

    When dry, string with ribbon and hang.

    You can also decorate with glitter glue and paint.

    You'll love them! I purchased vintage gingerbread men and I had alot of friends asking if I'd make a batch for them. Last year I made over 17 dozen as gifts to my students, friends, family on thier gifts.

    I purchased mine on ebay..for about 18.00 for 8 different ones and I took them to a friend of mine who collects antiques and she said 2 of them were close to 70 years old. I was shocked and have used them..life is too short not to enjoy them..lol

    I agree Marshmellow. I am curious about them now. I wonder if they are messy (what with all the cinnamon on them) or how long they last? I may trying them this year.
    "I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
