There’s something special about the smell of cinnamon and cloves that brings about memories of the holidays, and these ornaments will help bring a piece of that wonderful scent to your home year after year.



  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the applesauce, cinnamon, and cloves (optional). The dough should begin to form a ball but should not be too sticky, so add more cinnamon as necessary.
  3. Sprinkle your rolling surface with cinnamon, and use a rolling pin to roll the dough to ¼-inch thickness.
  4. Cut into desired shapes, and place on the sheet to bake. Leave a small hole at the top of each cutout for string to hang.
  5. Bake for about 1½–2 hours, or until the ornaments are very hard. Pull decorative string through the ornament, and tie to hang.
