Corn Dough

Well, it's not quite time for peppermint dough and I am a little over the pumpkin pie dough....what's a mama to do? After finding my old cast iron corn mold (and wiping the dust off) I thought it was the perfect tool for some fun November corn dough!   
Ingredients:
4 cups flour
4 cups water
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
3 tbs. vegetable oil
3 tbs. cream of tarter
1 cup salt
food coloring
Add all ingredients to a large pot except for the food coloring. Mix over medium heat until a soft dough forms. Dump the dough onto a cutting board and let cool.
Once cool, knead until soft and smooth. Next, divide the dough and knead food colors (of your choice) into each ball of dough.
This dough had a fun texture to it from the cornmeal. The kids loved using the cast iron corn molds along with some corn husks I had left over from corn husk dolls! Perfect way to wait for the peppermint dough to make it's first appearance.
