1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tsp. cooking oil
liquid food coloring
In a heavy saucepan, combine four, salt, and cream of tartar. Pour the water and oil into the dry mixture and stir well.
Cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, stirring all the time, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan. Remove from the heat.
Let it cool in a bowl covered with a wet cloth for a minute. Add 10-12 drops of liquid food coloring and knead until smooth and blended. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several weeks.
