Dec 21 - Christmas Playdoh

Today I made some playdoh for P to use her Christmas cutters with and scented them Christmas spices - we had one ginger batch, one nutmeg batch and one allspice batch (although they soon got jumbled up). Today I used this recipe for playdoh -
1 c. flour
1/2 cup salt
1 T. cooking oil
1 T. cream of tartar
1 c. water
Measure ingredients into the saucepan you will be using to cook the dough, but mix them well before putting the pan on the hob.  Over medium heat cook the dough, stirring constantly until it forms a ball.  (NOTE:  When it starts to pull away from the sides somewhat and clump together and most of the "wet-looking" parts look dry, it's ready to remove from the pan.)  Turn dough out and knead until smooth.  Add spices, colouring and anything else you wish.

Incidently this explains the science behind Play dough
sad aren't I
