    Audrey M's Note:

    An inexpensive way to make playdough. I have made this up and given it as birthday treats with a cookie cutter to go along with the playdough.

      Playdough turned out great! I too, only used half the amount of cream of tarter. Does anyone know if this needs to be stored in the refridgerator?
