  • We always used equal amount of salt and flour....say like 1 cup salt, 1 cup flour and then added water until it looked like dough...??

  • We didn't always "cook" ours. If we had time to let it air dry we did, if not we put it in the oven, i think at 200 degrees. The recipe above looks excellent. I checked out her site...awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
