4 c. flour
1 1/2 c. warm water
1 c. salt


Combine the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center. Pour in about 1 cup of the water, mixing with a fork or with your hands. Add more water as needed until dough is neither crumbly not sticky. Place on a lightly floured board and knead until smooth, 5 minutes. Use only a small amount of dough at a time and wrap the remainder and place in the refrigerator. Shape breaddough as desired. Bake on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. 325 degrees for about 1 hour or until dough is hard. Thicker pieces will take longer to bake. For a shiny finish brush with 1 whole beaten egg after 15 minutes of baking time and again in 15 minutes if a darker finish is desired. If the dough puffs up while baking make several holes in the puff using a straight pin. Your items may be painted with acrylic paints or varnished with spray or brush on varnish. Form your own shapes, shape in the form of rolls and breads, use cookie cutters, make impressions with all sorts of items found around the house...the possibilities are endless. To make a hole for hanging use a straw to make a hole before baking. To make hair or fur use a garlic press. Most of all be creative and enjoy. This is also a great project for the kids or grandkids this summer. Have them make special gifts for holidays and birthdays or to give to someone special.
