After a fun trip to the Pumpkin Patch, we decided to make our own! Oliver loves the feel and the smell. We even made a few extra batches to bring to school to share.
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 cup water
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
food coloring (6 drops red, 15 drops yellow)
1. Combine the dry ingredients in a non-stick saucepan. Add the oil, water and food coloring and whisk until smooth. Stirring constantly with a rubber spatula, cook the mixture over medium heat until it forms a ball, about 3 - 4 minutes.
2. Turn the dough onto a counter, let it cool slightly, then knead the dough until it has a smooth texture, about 1 minute. The dough will keep up to a week in a ziploc bag.
3. To make stems, place fusilli into a small plastic bag with about 5 drops of green food coloring. Smoosh it all around and then let it air dry on a piece of waxed paper for about 5 minutes or until it is dry.
