Make Your Own Holiday Ornaments!

Bake your own cinnamon dough cookie ornaments for your family, teachers, and friends.

You need three ingredients (and an adult's help).

Mix 6 tablespoons applesauce, 10 tablespoons ground cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon ground cloves in a bowl until smooth.

Ask an adult to roll the dough; it should be rolled over a layer of cinnamon to about 1/8-inch thickness.

Use cookie cutters or a plastic knife to cut out your shapes.

The adult needs to make holes for hanging ribbons with a small skewer.

Place cutouts on a cookie sheet.

The adult should bake the cookies in an oven at 120 degrees F for 1-1/2 hours. Leave the cookies in the stove overnight to dry.

Add ribbons. Makes about 20 ornaments.
