Your kids are going to think you are amazing!  Your guest will think you’ve been baking up a storm & not 1 calorie will be added to your waistline. Promise.

Easy Cinnamon Ornaments


  • 3/4 cup applesauce ( If you use the cups like I did, just use 2 of them)
  • 1 bottle (4.12 ounces) McCormick® Cinnamon
  • Ground Cookie cutters,  Drinking straw,  & Ribbon

* a rolling pin &  plastic wrap would also be handy! 


  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.
