How long have I had a thermomix? Oh over 3 years now and I’ve just made playdough for the first time and it was a piece of cake. Even if I didn’t have cream of tartar but had all sorts of other baking necessities like arrowroot, rice flour, glucose syrup, different types of sugars and flours. Not a bit of cream of tartar. Not to worry it turned out wonderfully and I just added roughly another 1/4 cup of flour and was good.
Now I actually made the playdough for my little 2 and 4 year old while the big kids were out at swimming. Next morning after church the big kids asked could they get the playdough out to play with it. OK? Well they were making ‘cookies’ and ‘cakes’ and helping the littles ones while I was catching up on laundry. Loved it
and even though my big kids had fun with the playdough the best fun was really had by my littlest ones…………..I’m going to make some more colours later in the week. This is also really great as an OT activity and for kids with special needs and sensory issues. Just getting their hands in there and rolling, cutting shapes and making things with the playdough is a great experience.
I used this recipe minus the cream of tartar and just added about 1/4 cup more flour once it was out on the board and I was kneading it.
