Early learning

  • 2 cups plain flour (all purpose)
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • (up to) 1.5 cups of boiling water (added gradually until it is right)
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients into a bowl.
  2. Add the oil
  3. Stir in the boiling water and allow to cool briefly
  4.  Knead it into a workable dough on a floured surface using your hands
  5. After a few minutes it should be soft and smooth and none should come off on your fingers.
  6. If it’s still a little sticky then add more flour, one tablespoon at a time until it’s just right!
