Pumpkin Pie Play Dough

A friend gave me this recipe for play dough and we love to make it in the fall. She gave us the dry ingredients in a jar with the instructions - such a cute present. Use green colored pasta as stems for the pumpkin play dough. Even though it smells good enough to eat, it's not one of the play dough recipes you can actually eat.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cinamon
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup water
Food coloring (orange, or 6 drops red + 15 yellow)

1. Combine the dry ingredients in a nonstick saucepan. Add the oil, water and food coloring and whisk until smooth. Stirring constantly with a rubber spatula, cook the mixture over medium heat until it forms a ball, about 3-4 minutes.

2. Turn the dough onto the counter, let it cool slightly, then knead the dough until it has a smooth texture, about 1 minute.
