Cinnamon Bowl Fillers

Bowl Fillers or Ornaments
Need something to Smell up your House? Well these are for you. I have these sitting on my kitchen table and every time I walk in the kitchen I smell them..

Cinnamon Applesauce Bowl Fillers:

1 cup applesauce
1 cup cinnamon

Mix in a large bowl and stir until well blended. Work mixture in hands for several minutes to form a ball. If the mixture is to dry you can add more applesauce. If it’s too wet you can add a more cinnamon.

Knead ball on cinnamon sprinkled surface until it holds together well. Then, roll out using a rolling pin sprinkled with cinnamon. You can use your favorite cookie cutters, or templates that you’ve drawn yourself to cut out your shapes. As you can see by the picture, for this batch, I chose to use a template of some little primitive stars for our shapes. I like the ornaments to be a little bit thick. This helps keep them from breaking over the years.

Place ornaments on a cookie sheet that has been sprinkled with cinnamon. Use a drinking straw to cut out the little circle that you will use to hang your ornament.

Air dry for 24 to 48 hours – turning several times. You can also place the cookie sheet in a very low oven (around 200 degrees), which will help them dry much faster. Remember to turn several times.
