Cinnamon Ornaments

Just in case you didn't have anything else to do on the day before Christmas, I thought I'd pass on another tradition I do with my children. We did this two weeks ago, but if you need an activity to occupy your children this afternoon while you're baking your pies, here it is.

Cinnamon Ornaments
3/4 c. apple sauce
4 1/2 oz. cinnamon (1/2 cup, really.)
about 1/2 - 1 c. flour

Mix the ingredients into a rollable dough, adding flour as needed, but trying to keep the dough brown. Roll out like sugar cookies, and cut with cookie cutters. Place on cookie sheets, then punch out a hole (for stringing ribbon) with a straw. Bake at about 200 for about 15-20 minutes, until firming up. Let cool and harden. String with ribbon and hang on the tree...This smells delicious!

Merry Christmas everyone!
