Homemade Playdough!

                                                                         
Soft, super soft, easy to work with & long lasting dough for your child to play & play & play with, over & over again! This is super easy & this dough lasts a long time! You choose the colors & each batch makes 3 large balls of dough about the size a little smaller than a softball! Your children will love this homemade dough! This is not my original recipe but taken from The Postman's Cookbook & credited to Patricia Anderson & Jo Ann Bryant! 
3 Cups Flour
1 & 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
3 Tablespoons Oil
3 Cups Water
6 Teaspoons Cream Of Tartar
FOOD COLORING, I used the new Neon Food Coloring it is perfect for this!
1 Tablespoon of Extract of your choice, ( this was my idea to make the Playdough have a nice scent while working with it) I used Cinnamon Extract, Peppermint would have been nice too. Any extract you like would work! Add the extract as part of the water to make the 3 Cups Water!
Mix all of the ingredients, EXCEPT the Food Coloring, together in a large HEAVY skillet or deep saucepan, I used my Cast Iron Skillet, & I highly recommend the Cast Iron skillet! Stir all the ingredients together in the pan until smooth. This will look like pancake batter. On the side have 3 separate bowls ready along with 3 bottles of the food coloring you have decided to use. Back to the skillet.Have a whisk & a large heavy spoon ready to use! Whisk the entire time as you cook this over medium heat. It will start to look lumpy, it is suppose to! Keep stirring as it comes together switch to the heavy large spoon to stir. Stir & stir & you will get smooth wet dough. At this stage separate into 3 large evenly divided clumps & place into the 3 separate bowls. You will need the skillet so keep it warm as you place enough food coloring in each bowl until you get the color you desire. Mine took about 1/2 bottle for each color! Knead the color into the dough. Now one at a time place one dough ball back into the skillet & press & cook until dough has the consistency of store bought Playdoh! Remove that color & put in the next & cook that one until you have the same result. Repeat with the third batch! Let cool & store in an airtight container in the refrigerator! This is FUN to make & FUN to play with! 
CAUTION: DO NOT COOK ON TO HIGH OF A HEAT PLAYDOUGH WILL START TO BROWN! DO NOT OVECOOK YOU WANT SOFT SMOOTH PLIABLE DOUGH & OVERCOOKING WILL GIVE YOU DRY CRUMBLING DOUGH! As soon as it looks just like Playdoh it is finished!
