Valentine Recipe

Here's a special recipe! It makes wonderful cinnamon-scented ornaments. (Do not eat!)

In a bowl, mix:

3/4 cup cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground allspice
2 tablespoons ground cloves
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg

Add:

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 heart-shaped 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 heart. Hang anyplace you wish to fill with the spicy aroma of cinnamon.

Enjoy!
