I feel this is the dough recipe that the most resembles the original "store-bought" Play Dough. Let me know what you think.
1 cup Flour
1 cup Water
1 Tbsp. Oil
1 Tbsp. Powdered alum
1/2 cup Salt
2 Tbsp. Vanilla
Mix all dry ingredients. Add oil and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until reaching the consistency of mashed potatoes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and food coloring. Divide into balls and work in color by kneading.
