2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 cup water
2 Tbsp oil
optional: immitation vanilla extract or essential oil
Combine in a sauce pan the flour, salt & cream of tartar. In another bowl, whisk together the water, food coloring (I used paste this time) & oil. Pour into sauce pan. Stir until it nearly comes together & add the vanilla if using.
Finishing by hand:
Put on clean surface & let cool a bit, then knead until smooth. I would consider wearing gloves if adding essential oil at this point, I would be afraid of not being able to wash the scent out afterwards! Wearing gloves helps to start kneading the dough while it is still hot as well.
Finishing by stand mixer:
As soon as it comes together put it in the bowl & add 15 drops cinnamon leaf essential oil (I did this rather than using vanilla). Use the dough hook to knead it until cool enough to handle.
Store in an airtight container.
