All You Need

  • 3/4 cup (187 1/2 mL) applesauce
  • 0 1 bottle (125 g) Club House Ground Cinnamon
  • 0 Cookie cutters
  • 0 Drinking straws
  • 0 Colourful ribbon


  1. Preheat oven to 200°F (95°C). Mix applesauce and cinnamon in small bowl until a smooth ball of dough is formed. You may need to use your hands to incorporate all of the cinnamon. Using about ¼ of the dough at a time, roll dough to ¼-in to 1/3-in (0.5-0.8 cm) thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap. Cut dough into desired shapes with 2- to 3-in (5-7.5 cm) cookie cutters. Make a hole at the top of ornament with drinking straw or skewer. Place ornaments on baking sheet.

  2. Bake 2 ½ hours. Cool ornaments on wire rack. To dry ornaments at room temperature instead of baking, carefully place them on wire rack. Let stand 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally.

  3. Insert ribbon through holes and tie to hang. Decorate with opaque paint markers, found in arts and crafts stores, if desired. Chef’s Tips: If a different size bottle of cinnamon is used, measure 1 cup plus 2 tbsp (280 mL) cinnamon.
