Gingerbread Ornaments

I made these in preschool about 20 years ago, and my parents still have them (and they still smell good!) Use alphabet cookie cutters, trees and stars, or gingerbread men!

Recipe:Add Image
-3 cups applesauce
-3 cups cinnamon
-1 tsp cloves, ginger, or allspice for scent (optional)

Mix ingredients together until it is thick enough to hold a form when cut into cookie cutter shapes. Flatten the mixture on a flat surface and cut into cookie cutter shapes.

Place cookie shapes on a cookie sheet to dry for 3 to 4 days depending on the size and thickness of the cookies. If using as a hanging ornament, make hole with drinking straw before drying.

Paint, or spray with polyurethane if desired. Thread with ribbon.
