  1. Awesome!! I love the scent of cinnamon around the holidays. Beautiful idea!

  2. Sorry for the confusion, that is 1 T. ( 1 Tablespoon) 🙂

  3. We always made these when I was little. I love the glitter and turning them into a garland. Adorable!!

  4. I have ones that I made about three years ago. I use them as ornaments on the tree. They still look great but have lost a lot of their smell. You can add a small drop of cinnamon oil on them each year to refreshen the cinnamon smell.

  5. I had a lot of problems! The dough was almost too moist, have no idea what i did wrong. I followed all of the steps! But only six turned out. Using wax paper kind of stunk too, it kept ripping, so I used parchment papervand that was a little better. Pretty bummed, I used to make these with my aunt, and shes not here (god rest her soul), I cannot find her recipe either, was hoping this would work

  6. I am sorry it didn&#39;t work out for you. If it was too moist then you would have needed to add more cinnamon. Its hard to know amounts exactly because people use different types of applesauce. I used homemade applesauce and it probably wasn&#39;t as moist as the store bought stuff so I needed less. <br /><br />If its too moist add more cinnamon. If its too dry add more applesauce. Hope

  7. this looks great…is it just regular glitter? like from a craft store?

  8. Thank you so much! I will try again!!! 🙂

  9. The recipe I have calls for 1 1/2 cups of cinnamon and you sprinkle a little cinnamon where you are going to roll out the dough not using wax paper…this works great for me

  10. Yes, bought it from Walmart!

  11. To Anonymous: 1). Two pieces of Saran wrap (or any generic plastic wrap….NOT Press and Seal) works better for me. Place both pieces on the counter, then LIGHTLY dust with cinnamon, and smear it around with your hand to cover the entire piece. Flip each piece over and dust the other side as well. 2). Always RESERVE some cinnamon to use for dusting the ROLLED OUT DOUGH as needed prior to cutting the ornaments with cookie cutters. 3). When mixing the dough, pour cinnamon into a bowl then gradually add spoonfuls of applesauce until the consistancy feels good and the ball of dough is not to wet or too sticky. 4). I use a cheap store brand of unsweetened applesauce (no sugar or flavor added). 5.) Place the ball of dough on the plastic wrap and flatten it with your hands. Lightly “dust” the dough with cinnamon. cover the dough with the second piece of plastic wrap and then roll out the dough. Loosen and reposition the plastic wrap as needed. After cutting the ornaments, wad the scraps of dough up into a new ball, adding dabs of applesauce or water if needed to moisten the dough before rolling it out again.
