Cinnamon Clay

1 cup cinnamon
1 tbsp cloves
1 tbsp nutmeg
3/4 cup applesauce (well drained)
2 tbsp white glue

Mix cnnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Add applesauce and glue. Work mixture with hands until smooth and well mixed. Divide into four portions. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness between two pieces of waxed paper. Cut with cookie cutters. Use a straw to make holes if you want to hang your ornaments. Put on a wire rack to dry at room temperature for several days. Turn twice daily so they don't curl. Hang with ribbon or colored yarn.

You can also dry the ornaments in a slow oven at 250 degrees until hard and dry.
