No-Bake Cinnamon Dough Ornament Recipe

1 1/2 cups ground cinnamon 
1 cup applesauce 
1/4 cup white school glue - like Elmer's  

1. Mix cinnamon, applesauce, and glue together in a bowl
2. Mixture should have a consistency of cookie dough
Tip: If it seems hard - add a little water
3. Knead dough for 5-10 minutes, place in bowl, cover with plastic wrap so it doesn't dry out, and let sit for 30-45 minutes
4. Knead dough again until smooth
5. Roll out dough between waxed paper until thickness is 1/8 to 1/4 inch

Use cookie cutters to create teddy bears, gingerbread people, gingerbread house panels, and holiday shapes. Use a straw to make a hole so you can hang the ornament. 

Place ornaments on wax paper for drying. Drying will take 3-5 days, turn ornaments over a few times a day in order for them to dry flat and prevent curling of the edges. Ornaments will shrink a little while drying.
