1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup salt
2 tbsp cream of tartar
1.5 tbsp gingerbread spice (here’s how to make your own)
1 tbsp vegetable oil (canola, oil oil, etc.)
Mix the dry ingredients together in a saucepan.
Measure the wet ingredients into a liquid measuring cup.
Place the pan on the stove, over medium heat, and stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Continue stirring, until the dough comes together, and a ball forms. The play dough is done when it’s no longer sticky. (This takes approximately five minutes.).
Transfer your play dough to a non-stick surface, and allow it to cool.
Then, knead it until it’s smooth, and store in an air-tight container.
This play dough has a shelf life of around three weeks.
