Cinnamon Ornaments

DeDe Wilson "A Field Guide to Christmas Cookies"
Cooking Demo
Epcot Food & Wine Festival 2003

2 C. jarred no-sugar added applesauce
2 1/4 C. ground cinnamon, plus more for rolling
1/4 C. ground ginger

10 yards 1/8" fabric ribbon, cut into 12 inch lengths

Have 2 cookie sheets ready.
Combine applesauce, cinnamon and ginger in a large  bowl until spices are
completely incorporated and mixture is stiff enough to  roll out. Add more cinnamon if necessary.

Roll dough out to 1/4" thickness on surface lightly  sprinkled with cinnamon.
Cut out shapes of your choice; insert end of chopstick in  top of each ornament and swirl around until a hole is formed. You can also use  a drinking straw.

Transfer to cookie sheets and allow to dry 12 hours or  overnight. Gently turn
over, dry for 12 more hours and repeat until completely  hard and dry. Drying
process may take several days.

Thread ribbon through hole and knot about 1 inch from  the ends. They are now ready to hang.

NOTE: I saw this item being made and the combination of the applesauce and spices does indeed make a "dough".
