Cinnamon Tree Ornaments

1/2 cup applesauce
3/4 cup ground cinnamon
3 Tbsp white school glue
extra cinnamon
Christmas or other shaped cookie cutters
Combine glue and cinnamon in a bowl. Add applesauce, stirring constantly until you
have a stiff dough. You may not need all the applesauce or you may need a little more. Remove
dough onto the table and knead for 5 minutes until firm. Let rest 30 minutes at room
temperature. Lay waxed paper out on the table. Dust rolling pin with cinnamon and roll clay out
on the waxed paper to about 1/8 inch thick. Cut out with cookie cutters. Poke a hole in the top
with a straw for hanger. Leave in a warm, breezy location to dry for about 48 hours to 1 week.
Turn over every 24 hours during the drying process. They smell yummy!
