Here is the recipe:
Mix together in bowl:
2 1/2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon alum (found in the spice section)
In a saucepan on the stove stir the following ingredients together. Bring to a boil.
2 cups water
1/2 cup salt
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
food coloring (if making the whole batch the same color, otherwise knead individual colors in at the end)
Once mixture is boiling, add
2 -1/2 cups flour
1 Tablespoons alum
Cook over low to medium heat stirring constantly until dough comes away from the edges of the pan and it becomes very hard to stir. Remove from heat and let cool slightly(until you are able to knead the dough).
Knead until smooth and elastic. Store in an airtight container.I put the food coloring all together because I didn't know what it would look like trying to do it at the end..... just so ya know.
