Several of you have asked about these, so here's the information. You take equal parts of applesauce and cinnamon - I did 1 cup of each (yes, that's 1 CUP of cinnamon - I bought a big thing from BJs). Mix it all together and it forms a weird dough/paste thing. You just roll it out between wax paper like cookies and cut out the shapes with cookie cutters. Put it on wax paper lined cookie sheets and poke holes in the top with a straw. Let them totally dry out flat for 3 days and then you can thread them with red ribbon and hang on your tree. Heidi gave me this recipe, so she gets all the credit!! I've also since seen something similar printed in a parenting magazine, and it said you could bake them at 200 degrees for 2 hours to dry them out too. I sort of liked having them in my laundry room and office drying out - it smelled GREAT! :) Kids loved doing it.
