Giving Thanks ~ Tuesday

Pumpkin Pie Play Dough

5 1/2 cups flour
2 cups salt
8 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 container (1 1\2 ounces) pumpkin pie spice (or 1 tablespoon each cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger)
3/4 cup oil
4 cups water
orange food coloring (2 parts yellow/1 part red)

In a large saucepan, mix flour, salt, cream of tartar, and spice. Add oil, water and food coloring; stir over medium heat. Continue stirring until dough forms and lumps are gone. Place on counter and let cool a minute or two. Knead dough until smooth. Store in an airtight container.

Set out rolling pins, cookie cutters, and little pie pans...

Have fun!
This is also fun to give as a gift - place the dough in a foil pie pan, wrap with saran wrap, tie with a bow. Attach a turkey cookie cutter and small rolling pin.
