Salt Dough Sensations

Today I baked my first batch of cut cookies for the holiday season...however I wouldn't suggest eating them.  Our Nutcracker starts with Clara's mother dancing on to stage with a platter of Christmas cookies.  So I made some lovely salt dough cookies covered in glitter.
  

I use a very basic salt dough recipe.

4 cups Flour
 1 cup Salt
1 1/2 ish cups Water

Mix everything together.  Add the water slowly until it is a roughly mix.  It should not be sticky...if it is you added to much water so add a little flour to balance it out.  

You can roll the dough and use cookie cutters or you can form it in to any kind of creation you want.

Then Bake it at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Check on your creations because some creations if thin won't take a full hour.  Let cool and then you can decorate.  

You can paint them with acrylic paints...or glitter them.  If you are feeling really crafty you can even add food coloring to the dough before you make your creations.
