Ornaments made with this simple mixture turn out dark brown and fragrant and stay firm for years. This is really an ideal substitute for ginger cookie ornaments -- it takes fewer ingredients and the dough is easier for children (and adults) to work with. And there is no baking! For best result, drain the applesauce overnight in a sieve to remove excess moisture.

Ingredients:

1 - 1 pound jar sweetened applesauce, drained
8 ounces ground cinnamon, or more if necessary
wax paper or parchment paper

Equipment:

electric mixer and bowl
assorted cookie cutter
match or toothpick

In a mixer bowl, gradually combine the applesauce with the ground cinnamon, alternating the ingredients until the mixture reaches the consistency of cookie dough. (Applesauce texture varies because of the water content in the apples themselves, so you have to judge the proper stiffness by the feel of the dough.)

Working with about 1 cup of the mixture at a time, pat the dough with your hands onto wax or parchment paper to about ΒΌ inch thick.

Using decorative cookie cutters, cut out ornaments, and with an old-fashioned wooden match or a toothpick, make a hole in the top of each.

Dry the ornaments in a warm place for a week, turning them every day.
