It's a fun thing to make & reminds us of playing with play-doh.. except, well.. you can eat this!
2 1/2 Cups Icing Sugar (Confectioner's Sugar)
3 Tablespoons Softened Butter or Margarine
2 Tablespoons Cream
1/2 Teaspoon Peppermint Flavouring (we only used 1/4 Teaspoon because we used real peppermint oil)
Note: I tried to add little notes to the pictures but it was taking waaay too long, sorry.
Step 1: Mix the ingredients
(If you don't feel that you're butter/margarine isn't soft enough put it in the microwave for about 10 seconds)
Your mixture might not seem like it would make good dough, but once you knead it in the next step you'll see that there's nothing to worry about.
Step 2: Knead the sugar dough
Once it has joined all together & is more malleable, flip the bowl over to get the dough out onto the counter.
Now I know that there are different ways to knead but this is just the way I had done it:
Use your hands to form your dough a bit into a ball, then squish it down so that it's flat & then fold it back over onto itself & repeat until the dough is soft & easy to form.
