From Thrifty-Fun, could be used for Gingerbread Men ornaments (not to eat).
I loved making cinnamon ornaments with my kids. After Christmas, I put them in a plastic baggie to keep the smell in and they smelled wonderful for years.
Recipe for Cinnamon Ornaments:
1 cup cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup applesauce (drain in strainer for several hours)
2 tablespoons white glue
Mix, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg together. Add applesauce and glue. Work mixture with hands until smooth. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters. Use a straw to make a hole for ribbon. Place on wire rack and air dry for several days, making sure to turn occasionally. When dry, tie ribbon thru hole to make hanger.

These are softer than regular gingerbread cookies.
Cream margarine, eggs, molasses and sugar. Sift dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients. Roll into balls and dip in sugar or roll and cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters.
Bake 10 minutes for round balls and 8 minutes for rolled cookies at 350 F.
Let stand before taking out of pan. Cookies will be soft but will
harden as they cool.
