1 cup (250 ml) water

Combine flour, salt and cream of tartar in a medium sauce pan. Add water and oil: cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. When mixture pulls away from side of pan and forms large ball, turn into small mixing bowl and let cool. Knead dough and add food coloring; (make one large, single colored ball, or several smaller balls of different colors). Store in air tight container(s).

  1. Yep. That's the recipe I always use. However, to make it easier, I just boil the water in the kettle, and add it to the dry ingredients which are in the mixing bowl under my stand mixer. Then I add the oil and food colouring. Then I turn on the stand mixer using the dough hooks, and let it knead it. None of that cooking on the stove anymore, or actually even handling it.
