Make Artificial Pies and Muffins

Here's the recipe for salt dough which is used to make artificial pies, muffins, biscuits, etc.

  • 2 cups plain flour (cheap brand will do)
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 cup water
Mix these ingredients together and knead, gradually adding water till smooth and firm. Not TOO MUCH water!

Remove from bowl and knead again for 5-10 minutes. Can be used immediately, but best if left for 30 minutes in an airtight container.

For Pie: shape in a pie pan as you would if you were making a homemade pie crust.

For Berries: roll into balls the size of cherries. make a hole with a toothpick. Make enough to fill the pie. If you want a top crust, do it the same as you wold a top crust by rolling it out, laying it on and pinching sides for a decorative trim. If you are not putting on a top crust, berries will need to be baked, punched with a toothpick and baked so they can be painted.

Before baking any of these items, spread on an egg white bath to make a gloss.

For Muffins: bake in muffin pans. Form a ball the size you want and press into tin leaving the top arched to resemble a muffin.

Bake any of these at 250 degrees for 1 hour. When thoroughly baked these will make a hollow sound when tapped. These make great gifts, bazaar items. Potpourri can be put inside the pie bottom and a latticework top made as the top crust. One Christmas holiday I made over $500.00 making cinnamon brooms decorated with Christmas cookies hot glued on and a Christmas bow.

Can you bake the potpourri in the pie if you add a top? If not, then how do you put the potpourri in the pie with a top on it? Thanks. (04/27/2009)
