School's out for the holidays.
For those of you that are parents, that signals just the beginning of the "I'm Bored" and "There's Nothing to Do!" doldrums...
I have a Christmas craft for you that will make something beautiful for your home (that smells amazing!) and give those idle hands something to do: Cinnamon Ornaments.
What You’ll Need:
3/4 c applesauce
4.12 oz. ground cinnamon (large bottle)
bamboo skewer or drinking straw
This is so simple, I’m just going to give you instructions and let you run with it, k?
1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Mix applesauce and cinnamon in small bowl until a smooth ball of dough is formed. (You may need use your hands to incorporate all of the cinnamon.) Using about 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll dough to 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap. Cut dough into desired shapes with 2- to 3-inch cookie cutters. Make a hole at top of ornament with drinking straw or skewer. Place ornaments on baking sheet.
2. Bake 2 1/2 hours. Cool ornaments on wire rack. (Or, to dry ornaments at room temperature, carefully place them on wire rack. Let stand 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally.)
3. Insert string/ribbon through holes and tie to hang.
