I looked for a long time to find a recipe to make gluten free play dough that didn’t contain corn or rice, and couldn’t find one. My daughter is sensitive to both, so I set out to make my own!
I had sorghum, arrowroot and millet in the fridge. After three batches, sorghum flour did the best. I took Mommypotomus’ play dough recipe and modified it to use sorghum flour.
Here’s the recipe:
1 cup sorghum (sweet, white, bobs red mill)
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup water
purple: 2 tsp red beet powder ( organic, non GMO)
Pink: 1/2 tsp red beet powder
Yellow: 3/4 tsp tumeric (mix the 1 cup water and heat before adding to dry goods)
Heat stove to medium. Stir ingredients constantly until thickens and pulls away from pan. Its still a bit tacky. I then scoop it out onto parchment to cool a little. I sprinkle 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup sorghum flour over it and knead it together. Add more if still tacky after it cools. You don’t want to add too much flour.
