The title says it all :) I am really trying to find a GF play dough recipe for my home.

I found a couple on this forum I haven't tried them so I'm not sure how they turn out but it seems pretty similar to my favourite wheat based one.



1 1/4 cups rice flour (asian works great, give a smoother texture)
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar (very important, do not omit this ingredient)
1 package of unsweetened Kool-Aid, any flavor (adds color and scent, skip this and use a few drops of food coloring if you are afraid the children may want to eat it, although it is gluten-free and wouldn't hurt them)
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cooking oil

1.Mix dry ingredients in a heavy pan.
2.Add oil and water (and food coloring if not using Kool-Aid).
3.Cook for approximately 3 minutes (or more), stirring constantly, or until the mixture pulls away from the sides of the pan.
4.Knead lightly on clean surface when cool enough.
5.Store in an airtight container.
