I think this is the first time I’ve posted a non-edible recipe on my blog. Yep, these cinnamon ornaments are not for eating. But I have been waiting for months to bake these ever since I found the inspiration on Pinterest. And now that we have stuffed ourselves with turkey and pie and Thanksgiving is behind us, we can move on to Christmas (yay!).
Some years we’ve gone in to the mountains and chopped a Christmas tree down, and other years we’ve just purchased one from a lot down the street. Either way, we’re real tree people. And we trim the tree while sipping spiked egg nog, with “Love Actually” playing in the background. It’s tradition.
And I think we have a new tradition with these homemade ornaments. They are super easy and require only two ingredients, applesauce and cinnamon. Plus, they smell incredible. Combined with a fresh pine tree, it’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas in my house.
Even though they are made with edible ingredients, these ornaments are definitely not for eating. Do not mistake them for cookies. I had to keep reminding myself of this fact while rolling and cutting them out, as I am an avid dough snitcher.
All of the ornaments are now hung on my tree and they look great. I’m ready for the holidays!
