Made up a quick batch of playdoh today using my recipe also posted on this blog. I guess I got a little carried away and came up with Galaxy Doh- the perfect fix for a dreary mid-February day. The previous recipe has been tweaked with each use and it now seems nearly perfect.
Here are the new additions:
1 cup flour
1 cup water
2 t cream of tarter (get it in the spice aisle)
1 T mineral oil
1/2 c salt
a few drops of hard candy oil or essential oil (optional to make it smell nice!)
red food coloring or Wilton frosting color
Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan and stir over medium heat until thickened. Remove from pan and knead in food coloring until blended and smooth. Place in plastic bag or airtight container when cooled.
Mineral oil can be found in the pharmacy aisles of any supermarket and is completely odorless which makes the doh last much longer before smelling rancid like when using vegetable oil. Wilton cake frosting color makes a much deeper colored dough and the colors are limitless. Hard candy flavoring can be found in the baking aisle of the supermarket and offers a wide variety of smells just for fun. Finally, the glitter made the dough super cute and fun. In the end, it looked just like the beautiful, vast galaxy with endless stars...
