These cinnamon apple sauce Christmas decorations are fun to make with the kids and smell amazing...don't let them eat the mixture though! I was sceptical that this recipe would work, but it really does. You can buy cheap, large packets of cinnamon from the 'world foods' section of large supermarkets...look for East End or TRS brands.
- 2 cups home made or bought apple sauce
- 2 cups cinnamon powder (you might need more)
- 4 tbsp PVA, white glue
- 1 tsp fine silver or gold glitter
Flatten the dough on a sheet of grease-proof paper, to around ½ cm thick.
Cut out gingerbread men or Christmas shapes using cookie cutters.
Use a drinking straw to punch a hole in the top of each shape.
Leave in a warm place to dry over night, turn the next day and repeat until they are hard - alternatively put on a baking tray in a very low oven, for several hours.
Once dry, decorate with glitter glue and thread with ribbon to hang.
