Cinnamon and applesauce ornaments are a great addition to your tree and they smell amazing

•1 cup applesauce
•Approximately 3/4 cup ground cinnamon
•2 tablespoons ground cloves
•1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
•1 tablespoon ground allspice

•In a large bowl, combine the applesauce and spices; mix well until a stiff dough forms, adding additional cinnamon if needed.
• On a board dusted with additional cinnamon, roll out each portion of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into shapes using 1-1/2-in. cookie cutters dipped in cinnamon. Reroll scraps. Place cutouts on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
• Using a straw or wooden skewer, make a small hole in the top of each of the ornaments.
• Bake at 200° for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove to paper towels to dry thoroughly. When completely dry and cool, string a ribbon strip or piece of thread through each hole; tie the ends together to for a loop. Yield: about 60 (1-1/2 inch) ornaments.
