My kids and I always have fun making these! They are great to scent your house or to give with gifts. We hang them on our tree, the garland on the staircase, and on the outside of wrapped gifts!
1 cup cinnamon*
2 tablespoons white glue
1 tablespoon ground cloves
3/4 cup applesauce
1 tablespoon nutmeg
Ribbon or string for hanging
In a medium bowl combine cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Add applesauce and glue. Stir. Knead for 2-3 minutes or until dough is smooth and ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes.
Tip: make sure you keep these away from food products/gifts or it may change the flavor and scent of the food.
*Yes - it's 1 cup of cinnamon!! To keep my cost down I go to my local dollar store and buy a big container for just $1. You are not eating these so expiration dates and quality are not important.
