Call me crazy but I love the smell of cinnamon, especially during the holiday season. With that being said I found it to be the perfect time to make some Holiday Cinnamon Ornaments. It was a very simple and easy recipe and added the perfect touch to my Christmas Tree. My house now smells of that wonderful cinnamon holiday aroma thanks to these beauties. With just a few simple ingredients you too can make these simple holiday cinnamon ornaments in no time. 

Holiday Cinnamon Ornaments


1 cup Applesauce
1 1/4 cup Ground Cinnamon
1 tablespoon Ground Cloves
Holiday Cookie Cutters


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the applesauce, cinnamon, and cloves (if using). It may take a few minutes for the mixture to come together. You want the dough to be able to form a ball without being too sticky. Add additional applesauce or cinnamon if needed. You can mix the dough by hand, it may just take longer.
  3. Sprinkle a clean surface with cinnamon (like you would with flour while rolling out pie dough). Place the dough on the surface and sprinkle with more cinnamon. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to ¼ inch thick, sprinkling with more cinnamon to keep from sticking.
  4. Cut out into desired shapes and place on the prepared sheet pan so that they aren’t touching. Use a skewer to poke a hole into each ornament (to attach string). Bake in the preheated oven for 1½ – 2 hours or until rock hard.
  5. Loop a decorative string through the ornament and hang on your tree.
