4 c Unsifted all-purpose four,1 c Salt,1/4 c Instant coffee,1 1/2 c Warm water
1. Dissolve the coffee in the warm water. 2. In another bowl, mix the flour and the salt. 3. Make a hole in this and add 1 cup of the coffee water into it. 4. Mix with a fork or hands until smooth. 5. Add more coffee water if needed: dough should be smooth and satiny, not sticky or crumbly. Store in a plastic bag to prevent drying of the dough. Bake finished designs in a 300 degree oven for 1 hour or more (until hard). Add 2 coats of shellac to preserve.
