Old-Fashioned Applesauce Spice Ornaments
1. Begin by mixing the applesauce, cinnamon powder, and clove powder in a bowl. Mix well.
2. Check the consistency of the mixture. You want it to feel like damp dough that shapes when you squeeze it. If you squeeze and the mixture is too wet, add in a sprinkling of cinnamon powder (about 1/2 tsp at a time) until it is less sticky. If the mixture is too dry and crumbly, add in a teaspoon of applesauce at a time until the mixture becomes more firm.
3. Once the mixture is firm and shapeable, you can roll it out onto a flat surface. Before you do, sprinkle the surface with more cinnamon powder to prevent sticking.
4. Roll the dough out so it is about 1/4 of an inch thick. Take cookie cutters of your choice and press them into the dough to create your shapes.
5. Use a spatula to remove the cutouts and place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
6. Before you heat the cutouts, take a pencil and poke one end into the top of each ornament to create a hole for hanging.
7. Bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours. The ornaments should be firm when done, but not crispy as this may cause breakage.
8. Allow to cool and remove ornaments with a spatula. Use twine or ribbon for hanging by simply looping the material through the premade hole. Enjoy!
