Cinnamon Star Drawer Sachets

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 1 1/2 to 2 hours

Servings: 1 jar


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


Preheat oven to 200 °F.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together applesauce and cinnamon until a ball of dough is formed. Use your hands to get the final cinnamon mixed in thoroughly. Place dough between two pieces of plastic wrap and roll out until approximately ¼ inch in thickness. Using a small star shaped cookie cutter, cut into stars and place on the parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Bake for 1½ to 2 hours depending on the size of your stars. You may also dry the sachets at room temperature on a wire rack for 2 days until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally.

To give as a gift: Fill a mason jar with dried sachets and tie with a bow. A great gift for any occasion!

To use: Place in any drawer you want to keep freshly scented. Discard after scent fades.
