Want to make your house smell delicious? Need decorations for your tree?
Make a batch of my Cinnamon Apple Ornaments. These are not edible, but they smell wonderful and the aroma lasts for a few months. They can decorate your holiday tree, your wreath, or you can put them on top of packages.
Here's the recipe:
3/4 cup cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground allspice
2 tablespoons ground cloves
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
1 cup applesauce
Pour in 1 1/2 tablespoons white glue
Mix well until the mixture is stiff.
Between two sheets of waxed paper, roll out the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the ornaments. Using a drinking straw, poke a hole in each one for hanging. Allow several days to dry at room temperature. When dry, insert a ribbon in the hole in each ornament.
It doesn't look very appetizing--and it isn't.
Cutting the shapes with cookier cutters is easy.
Use a drinking straw to make a hole. Later, when the ornament is dry put a ribbon through the hole for hanging.
You can use a cookie stamp, too. :^)
