Cinnamon Ornaments


By Gloria Pitzer, as shared in her 1994, homemade, Christmas card*

Start with ½ cup ground cinnamon and drop in, 1 TB at a time, enough applesauce to mix into a smooth dough that you can form into a ball and roll out to ¼-inch thick, on a cinnamon-dusted surface.

Cut with Christmas themed cookie cutters. Make a hole near the top of each, through which to run a loop of ribbon, for hanging on the tree after they’ve air-dried until hard.

Makes about 12 ornaments and smells like freshly baked pies!

*I also shared the above recipe (November 30, 2020) on-the-air with Kathy Keene – on her “Good Neighbor” show on WHBY in Appleton, WI. If you missed the show, you could listen to the podcast at
