Rustic Cinnamon Hearts

How is everyone today? I'm doing pretty good. I sometimes feel that I am more tired on Mondays than on Fridays! Go figure. Your weekends are suppose to be restful and rejuvenating, preparing you for the week ahead! Anyway, I was kinda tired today.
Over the weekend I made these little hearts to hang on the screen that sits on the mantel. I wasn't sure what I was going to put up there but wanted something for Valentines Day but not a lot of pink and red. So I made these! They were super fun and made your house smell A.MAZ.ING!!
You only need 2 ingredients!!
1 cup Apple Sauce and 1 1/2 cups Cinnamon

That's it!
 I bought the cheap stuff at the dollar store.

Mix it together and roll it out to 1/4 inch thick.
You might need to dust the surface with Cinnamon before rolling it out.

 Bake at 200 degrees for 1-3 hours.
Mine took about 3 or so. You want them to be really hard.

Let them cool and then use a needle to pull your string through.
You might not need the needle but I used cooking twine and it was a little thick.
