You can't eat it
but it is fun for playdough over the holidays!
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
salt, cream of tartar and spices. You can add more spices
in equal proportions if you want it more gingerbready.
In a separate boil,
combine oil and water, mixing well. Slowly add the oil mixture
to the dry mixture, stirring well. Over medium heat, cook
the mixture for 2-3 minutes, stirring well so it doesn't burn.
Once it becomes more of a playdough consistency (it will start
to form a ball on itself, pulling away from the sides of the
pot), remove from heat and allow to cool enough so you can
handle it. Knead the dough until it it is the same smooth
consistency of regular playdough without any lumps.
