Scented Ornaments (NOT Edible)

Here’s something you don’t find everyday. They’re fun to make and smell good too! Use any shape cookie cutters you want. A trip to your local wholesale club for bulk spices is a good idea.

1 cup applesauce
1 Tbsp. nutmeg
1 Tbsp. allspice
2 Tbsp. ground cloves
3/4 cup cinnamon

Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients; work the dough well. If it seems too moist then add more cinnamon. Roll the dough out onto the paper-lined cookie sheet.
Use cookie cutters (or whatever) to cut the dough into shapes. Use toothpicks or straws to pierce a whole through the ornament. Clear away the extra dough and make small balls with it (wrap these in mesh & tie with a ribbon for great potpourri) or toss out. Leave shapes on tray and air dry these for 5 days.
