From Grandma’s Country Kitchen — Dough

Here are a couple of salt dough recipes if you ever want to make hand prints or foot prints for a child.


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup salt

3/4 cup water

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Place dough in ziplock bag and knead until smooth. After kneading, take out of bag and form into 3 smooth balls.

Place together in a snowman shape to make sure they sit well. Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper. Take the snowmen apart once more and bake at 180 degrees until they are hard. (About three hours). Don’t brown and keep turning as they will dry out.

Use tacky glue to hold together. Use mod podge waterproofing glaze. Use child socks for hats and pompoms.

The next recipe is what I used to make my grandson’s footprint.


1/2 cup salt

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup water (give or take)

Knead until dough forms

Make impression. Bake at 200 degrees for three hours. Do this every summer and make a stepping stone path.

Enjoy your day!
