For my Keefer Girls

I am an only child and my cousin Kelly means the world to me. She has 2 of the most beautiful and perfect girls  - Kerrington is 3 and Quinn just turned 1.  I just love love love them!!!
So in their Christmas box I am making them a batch of this Gingerbread Play-dough I found on Sweet Sugar Belle's blog.

I put mine in a quart canning jar with gingerbread cookie cutters attached.

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 TBS ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cloves
2 TBS vegetable oil
1 cup water
1 tsp orange extract (optional)

In a medium saucepan whisk together dry ingredients. Next mix in the water, oil, and orange extract and stir until a thick batter is formed.  Cook the mixture over low/ medium heat until a thick dough forms. Turn out onto parchment paper and knead until smooth. Makes about 2 cups of dough.
