Apple Pie Scented Play Dough

As a child I can remember one of our annual end of summer trips. It was always to the apple orchard to get apples that we would dine on in one manner or another. One thing my mother did not do but I did for my children was make them scented play doughs for every season. If you would like to try to make your child some then you should try this easy recipe. Have fun

Red Apple Cider Dough Playdough Recipe

1 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 cup of  apple cider
4 tablespoons of vegetable oil
red food coloring
2 cups flour
1/2 cup of salt
4 tablespoons of cream of tartar
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
To make the apple cider playdough recipe measure the dry ingredients {flour, salt, cream of tartar, and cinnamon} and dump each into a medium sized bowl. measure and mix the wet ingredients {apple sauce, cider, oil, and dye} in a medium sized pot. Then we heated the wet ingredients on medium, stirring often until it bubbled.  The house smelled so yummy during this step – it made A dance around the kitchen in excitement. {I prefer using real apples and cider to scent my dough, instead of scented oils, so the smell isn’t overpowering.}
Once it was bubbling remove the pot from the heat and add the dry ingredients. stir until the playdough begins to form, then dump mixture onto the counter to cool.  The dough will be sticky at first but, once cooled and kneaded, the stickiness disappears. The playdough recipe smelled wonderfully spicy and slightly sweet. This dough can store for several weeks in an airtight container or bag
