2 cup flour

1/2 cup salt

1 cup water





  1. Preheat oven to 200°F.
  2. Mix together flour, salt, and water.
  3. Knead for 15 minutes (or use the dough hook on your stand mixer – so easy!).
  4. Roll out the dough to no more than 1/4-inch thick.
  5. Press child’s hand into the dough. (TIP: If you’re doing this with really little ones, you may have to go back and make deeper impressions of their hands with your fingers or a kitchen utensil–the deeper the impression, the better your handprint will be)
  6. Trim the dough to desired size and shape.
  7. For added “pop” brush food coloring over the print indention.
  8. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 4 hours or until golden.
