4 c Un-sifted all-purpose four
1 c Salt
1/4 c Instant coffee
1 1/2 c Warm water
Dissolve the coffee in the warm water. In another bowl, mix the flour and the salt. Make a hole in this and add 1 cup of the coffee water into it. Mix with a fork or hands until smooth. Add more coffee water if needed. Dough should be smooth and satiny, not sticky or crumbly. Store in a plastic bag to prevent drying of the dough. Bake finished designs in a 300-degree oven for 1 hour or more (until hard). Add 2 coats of shellac to preserve.
