Salt Dough Footprint Keepsakes

Salt dough recipe:
1 cup salt
1 cup plain flour
Up to half a cup of water

Mix together into a large bowl and knead it until smooth and stretchy. This last part is important otherwise the dough remains sticky and quite granular from the salt. If it is still too sticky add a bit more flour, if too dry and crumbly then add a tiny touch more water. A little bit of trial and error is all that is needed and it really is so easy!

Make impression. Bake at 100 degrees C (around 200 degrees F) for 3 hours. Do every year and make a stepping stone path :)
