Salt Dough Recipe

2 c. flour

1 c. salt

1 c. water

In a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, mix together the flour and salt. Add 1/2 c. water and mix. While the dough is mixing, gradually add the remaining water until dough forms a ball and is smooth. You may not need all the water.

Roll out dough and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Use a straw to make a hole for hanging. 

Place on a grease cookie sheet. Bake at 250 for about 2 hours, checking after 1 hour. The time will vary depending on how thick your "cookies" are. 


Add cinnamon and/or nutmeg for color or scent. {Think Christmas ornaments}

Add food coloring. 

Add glitter.



Paint and decorate as desired.

For a durable finish, coat with an acrylic varnish or clear spray paint.
