What you need to know

Don’t be intimidated by the cooked recipe. This dough is a mix of starch, water, salt and an oil, and it uses heat to help the starch gelatinize. But one of the most important ingredients in the recipe is cream of tartar, (also called acid potassium tartrate). Cream of tartar is a byproduct of wine fermentation, and it’s used in cooking to stiffen liquids like egg whites. In this recipe, it makes the dough stronger and stiffer.

This recipe is super easy to make. You can add colors or scents for endless variations. Best of all it is edible, allergen free and non-toxic. Although most kids won’t want to eat play dough, it is safe in case you little celiac accidentally takes a taste or puts little fingers into their mouth.

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients together in a pot and mix well.
  2. Place plan over low heat and stir consistently until the wet mix becomes a solid ball.
  3. Dust the countertop lightly with cornstarch and turn the lump of dough out onto it.
  4. As soon as it is cool enough to handle, knead the dough until smooth.
  5. When coloring the dough, be sure to add the food coloring before heating the mixture.
  6. Store in air tight ziplock bags.
