Day 175.... Applesauce and Cinnamon Ornaments

Each year the very first ornament we make is Applesauce and Cinnamon ornaments. They make the house smell delicious and to the kids it is the "Smell of Christmas."

Big daddy said this was his first year getting to make them. I can hardly believe it as we have been making them 8 or 9 years. Needless to say he was as excited to get rolling and cutting as the kids! Let the fun begin!

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling!!

Cutting them out with Christmas cookie cutters. We used a tree shape, gingerbread man, candy cane, and star. Wish I could find a reindeer cutter. Maybe next year.

Getting a little help from Daddy!

Future Buddy Valastro from Cake Boss. Carson said "I'm taking the #2 and piping a little along the sides". FUNNY!

The kids love decorating them after they cool with a little glitter glue.

Their finished ornaments.

The recipe: 1/2 cup applesauce, and 1/2 cup cinnamon. Use extra cinnamon on your cutting board and rolling pin to roll them out. We use a straw to poke a hole. I think I usually cook at 275 for about an hour. Just cook long enough to harden them.
