Makes my Monday - best playdough recipe ever!
Playing along with Cheryl - what a great way to start the week.
I have tried many playdough recipies and this one I begged off The Little Miss' school after they made great playdough on one of their baking Fridays. It is the third time I made this recipe and it is truly great - cheap, easy, exceptionally easy to shape and it keeps for months in a sealed container. This truly makes my Monday.
For a special touch, add food flavoring ie. strawberry to pink , mint to green and lemon to yellow. For extra special add dry glitter - it makes wonderful sparkly dough.
500 ml (16,9 ounces) All purpose flour
500 ml (16,9 ounces) water
125 ml (4,2 ounces) table salt
15 ml (0,5 ounces) creme of tartar
15 ml (0,5 ounces) glycerin
Food coloring and flavoring of your choice
Mix all except the coloring and flavoring.
Cook in a pot on a medium temperature while you keep stirring until it makes a ball in the middle of the pot.
Cool down and kneed well.
Add coloring and flavoring and keep in an airtight container.
I had to convert from the metric - hope it makes sense.
