3/4 cup applesauce
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Mix applesauce and cinnamon with hands in small bowl until smooth ball of dough is formed. Using about 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll dough to 1/4-inch to 1⁄3-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap; cut dough into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Make a hole in top of ornament with drinking straw. Place ornaments on baking sheet.
Bake 21/2 hours. Cool ornaments on wire rack. (Or, to dry ornaments at room temperature, carefully place them on wire rack. Let stand for 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally). Insert ribbon through holes and tie to hang.
