    About this recipe: This recipe makes about a dozen non-edible ornaments for your tree which smell like Christmas and will keep for a long time. Get the whole family involved and have some fun! Even though they smell delicious, don't be tempted to eat them, they are purely for decoration. Use a straw or thick wooden skewer to pierce a hole in the dough so you can thread some ribbon for hanging them on your Christmas tree once they have completely dried out.

    Makes: 1 dozen ornaments

    • 110g ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 200g apple sauce
    • 2 tablespoons glue

    Prep:30min  ›  Extra time:4hr drying  ›  Ready in:4hr30min 

    1. In a medium bowl, stir together the cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Mix in the apple sauce and glue. Work the mixture with your hands for 2 to 3 minutes to form a ball. If mixture is too wet, add more cinnamon. If mixture is too dry, add more apple sauce.
    2. Lightly dust a clean work surface with cinnamon. Roll out the dough to about 5mm thickness. Cut out shapes with Christmas biscuit cutters, and use a straw to make a hole at the top so you can hang them up with a ribbon.
    3. Dry in a low oven around 100 degrees C for several hours, or air dry for 4 or 5 days. When dry, decorate however you like!
