Get Mixing!
1. Combine all dry ingredients with the exception of mulling spices.

2. Mix in wet ingredients, using a spoon or – better yet – your hands and fingers.
Squish and shape the dough into a ball.

3. Experiment! Add more flour or water if your dough is too wet or dry.

4. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough until it is between 1/4″ and 1/2″ thick.

5. Use cookie cutters or anything around the house to cut out shapes.
You can also use your hands to sculpt figurines.

6. Let the dough air-dry over a period of days,
or accelerate the process by baking in the oven at 300 F until firm.
