1 1/2 C flour
1/2 C salt
1/2 C water
1/4 C veg. oil or a few drops of liquid detergent
Food Colouring (optional)
What to do;
1) Mix the flour and salt together in a bowl.
2) Slowly add the water, oil (or detergent) and food colouring.
3) knead the dough well and shape into several balls. Makes enough for two people.
You can roll it, make it into animals, "cookies", cakes, holiday ornaments.. for added fun, use cookie cutters, spoons.
Put the remaining dough in a tightly closed container or plastic bag and keep in the refrigerator to be used again another day. If it becomes too sticky, add flour.
