Ingredients

  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1-1 1/4 cup 130 grams ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground cloves optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the applesauce, cinnamon, and cloves (if using). You want the dough to be able to form a ball without being too sticky. Add additional applesauce or cinnamon if needed. You can also mix the dough by hand.
  • Sprinkle a clean surface with cinnamon (like you would with flour while rolling out cookies). Place the dough on the surface and sprinkle with more cinnamon. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick, sprinkling with more cinnamon to keep from sticking.
  • Cut out into desired shapes and place on the prepared sheet pan so that they aren't touching. Use a skewer to poke a hole into each ornament (to attach string). Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 - 2 hours or until rock hard.
  • Loop a decorative string through the ornament and hang on your tree.
