|Cinnamon Dough Ornaments
Cinnamon dough ornaments are simple to make. They'll add a homemade touch to your Christmas tree and the spicy aroma of cinnamon to the room.

Mix applesauce with cinnamon to form a stiff but rollable dough. Adjust these amounts depending on the consistency of the applesaauce used. Roll to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use extra cinnamon for rolling the dough, as you would normally use flour.
