Microwave Dough Art
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups hot water -- (instant coffee may be added to the water to give dough a brown/antique color)
Knead dough 6 - 8 minutes. Roll out dough and cut with cookie cutters into desired shapes. Place on wax paper on glass tray; with a toothpick, make several holes in each piece to let air escape, then microwave on high for about 2 minutes. Time will vary according to size of "cookies." When baked, allow to cool before decorating.
