Never fail play dough recipe
1 cup flour
1 cup beet cooking water, spinach cooking water, or onion skin cooking water...or water
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tbsp cooking oil - I usually use grapeseed oil
If you want to get fancy add a few drops of essential oil when you knead it
Put in a pot on the stove on medium
Stir constantly til it thickens
Let it cool til you can handle it
Stores really well in a closed container.
This is a lovely soft playdough, just right for first dough experiences with little ones, it doesn't dry out quickly, it doesn't dry out little hands, and it isn't gritty like a lot of homemade doughs. We love this dough.
Takes less than 10 minutes to make.
But it doesn't taste good!
