- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1 tsp. cream of tarter
- 1 tsp. oil (optional)
- food coloring
- And we had fun adding some mint extract to make it smell good.
- 1 cup hot water.
Mix dry ingredients in a pan. Add wet ingredients (though if you want more than one color of dough wait to add the food coloring until you are kneading it.) and cook and stir the dough until it leaves the sides of the pan and becomes a big ball. Stop cooking and knead it (be careful! It will be hot) until it is nice and smooth and the coloring is all worked in. That's it! Store in a sealed container.
Another fun gift (and actually one I want to make today, these pictures are from when me sister Anna made it last year) is "Sugar and Spice Nuts". Or you don't have to give them away, they can just make a very nice treat.
Sugar and Spice Nuts
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie seasoning
2 cups nuts of your choice.
(I am planning on trying mixed nuts. My sister used just pecans which was very yummy.)
Spread on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Store in airtight container.
