Even more cinnamon

ZimtduftThree years ago I found these lovely ornaments in a german magazine called landlust and since then I just get them out every year again. That’s why today I’ll tell you how to do them. The following ingredients are needed and supposedly available in nearly every household.

1.8oz cinnamon, 2 tbsp finely ground cloves, 1 tbsp nutmeg, about 3/4 cup of applesauce

Mix spices in a bowl and add applesauce step by step to obtain a firm moldable pastry. Roll it out about 1/4″ thick and cut stars, hearts or anything else with cookie cutters. Make a small hole to hang them up lateron. You can use a toothpick, a thick needle or a knitting needle. Put them on a rack and let them air dry for 3-4 days. Then you can hang them up directly or decorate them with some star-anise which is best to be fixed with hot glue. They’ll spread a light scent of cinnamon for holiday.
