We usually make salt dough ornaments at this timeof the year, but spurred on my Chris at Thinly Spread I decided to give cornflour dough a try. However, typically I didn’t have the ingredients on hand to make her recipes so made up my own.
- 2 cups salt
- two thirds of a cup of water
- 2 cups cornflour
- Half cup water
Mix 2 cups of salt with two thirds of a cup of water in a pan and stir constantly over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until bubbles appear.
Remove from heat and immediately add to 2 cups cornflour and half a cold water and mix quickly to form a stiff dough and kneed.
Roll out and cut out your shapes, use a straw to push out a hole to thread ribbon through and then cook for 3 to 4 hours at 150 degrees c.
