I Have tried several recipes (baked and non-baked) but here is my favorite salt dough recipe.



  1. Pour the hot water and salt into the bowl and stir for 1 minute. The grains of salt will reduce in size but not dissolve.
  2. Add the flour and stir until the water is absorbed.
  3. Turn the dough onto the table or bread board and knead a few minutes. The dough is ready when it is smooth and pliable.
  4. Keep the dough in a plastic bag so it will not dry out as you use it. It is best to use the dough within 24 hours.
