Clay Cinnamon Decorations

No Photo


  • 1 1/2 cups cinnamon
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup white school glue


  1. Mix the cinnamon, applesauce, and glue together in large batter bowl. Remove from bowl and knead until it turn into a firm "clay." Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  2. Dust mold lightly with cinnamon (it is not necessary to spray the mold before dusting). Tap side to remove any excess cinnamon. Break off a piece of dough and press firmly into the mold. If the dough is sticky, dust hands with cinnamon before pressing dough into mold. Use knife to trim off extra dough. Holding mold upright, sharply rap on edge of a protected surface (cutting board with folded towel works well) 3 times or until dough starts to fall out. Carefully peel the clay out of the mold and place it on a flat surface. Use a plastic drinking straw to poke a hole at the top of the cookie decoration.
  3. Place Clay Cinnamon Decoration on a cooling rack and allow to dry for about 5 days.
