The Quickest Ever Salt Dough Recipe

quickest ever salt dough recipe

I love Salt Dough but it takes an age to bake which if you have toddlers and preschoolers means that whilst it bakes you can have lots of “When’s it going to be ready” so thanks to a virtual friend I was told about this quickest ever salt dough recipe… and what’s more it really works.

Salt Dough Recipe

1/2 cup of salt

1/2 cup of water

1 cup of flour

How to make the salt dough

Add the 1/2 cup of salt and 1 cup of flour to a bowl stir in the water adding it slowly – you may not need all of the water. You want the dough to be dry – if it gets sticky add more flour. Knead the dough and then roll out and use as you want.

Once you have made the shapes you want then you need to dry them so you can paint. Traditionally salt dough is dried in the oven which takes around 3 hours at a low heat so they don’t burn. But instead swap your oven for a microwave and zap for 3 mins. If when the time is up they are still a little wet then just put back in for another 20 seconds at a time until done. Leave to cool down and then paint.
