|BEST play dough EVER! So smooth and elastic!|
|Stir over medium heat. It looks like goop, but it'll get there.|
|Keep stirring until it starts to clump into a ball, and clean off the sides of the pot|
|My trick- knead the oil into the dough right out of the pot- it's hot, so if you can't handle it, you can mix it in in the beginning.|
|Really- just buy the cheap stuff, but I only had the good stuff on hand|
|I actually added about a teaspoon more to get the color. Add with a drop of oil to help it incorporate better|
|Grammie Yellow Play Dough!|
I hesitated before posting this not because of anything in the recipe itself, but because my mother's recipe is her own, and it's so perfect it really should be secret. But then I realized that there's no reason to have a "secret recipe" for play dough! Everybody should be able to give their kids the gift of the Perfect Play dough!
So in honor of my mother, Shelley, I am letting you in on the little secret, and I hope you all enjoy it!
Grammie Shelley's Perfect Playdough
2 cups flour
1/2 c salt
1 1/2 c water
4 tblspoons cream of tartar
1 tablespoon oil.
You can add more water or flour at anytime. Cook over med. heat until it forms a ball. Cool, and knead when cooled.
