Recipe Review: Salt Dough

For me, nothing brings on a case of childhood nostalgia faster than warm salt dough. Hardens and can be painted if left out to dry, so this also works well for making that model mountain your kid has been assigned as homework.

Salt Dough
From my mom
  • 1 c salt
  • 2 c flour
  • 4 T oil
  • 4 t cream of tartar
  • 2 c water
  • extract for fragrance
  • food coloring
Mix ingredients in a pot and cook, stirring frequently, until it forms a sticky ball. Knead in color and fragrance as desired. Store in an airtight container or grocery bag.
