Spicy christmas ornaments

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Applesauce
4 ounces Ground cinnamon
1 ounce Ground cloves
1 ounce Ground nutmeg
1 ounce Ground ginger


(did some research, from Reader's Digest, Secrets of Better cooking: 1oz = ⅛ c = 2 Tbs; 4 oz = 8 Tbs = ½ c.) Combine everything and blend with your hands until dough is smooth. Add more applesauce if necessary. Divide dough into quarters. Sprinkle counter with cinnamon and roll out portion of dough to ¼" thick. Cut with cookie cutters and transfer to cookie sheet. Pierce with skewer to form hole for hanging. Turn ornaments every 12 hours and examine until they are dry. This takes 3 to 5 days. When the ornaments lose their scent, dab on oil of cinnamon. Note: Roll out dough on aluminum foil and move the foil onto the cookie sheet. It will help the ornaments keep their shape. Note: You can alter the amounts as long as you use about 7 oz ground spices to 1 c applesauce.
