Nice recipe

If your having problems with the consistency, like the dough keeping its shape, add more cornstarch. It xxhelps a lot, and also knead the dough like you would with bread.
This is a really good recipie though.

Squooshy Blobby
by: Anonymous

It was hard to get the consistency correct-- once it was no longer crumbling, then suddenly it was too squooshy. Not as in sticky-wet, but squooshy as in when we tried to make shapes any lines, marks, or separations tended to flow back together into blobbishness instead of staying defined. Didn't have much structural integrity-- tried to roll out a snake and have its head lifted just a little, and the head kept sinking down. Very small pieces just crumbled as we tried to shape them (even with the squooshiness!). It rolled into marble shapes (we made planets) and egg shapes and simple snakes just fine, though!

Measurement?
by: Anonymous

is 1.4 a quarter cup or a little less than 1 and a half?

Julie says
Hmm.. I hadn't spotted that. I would think she means a quarter. I will try it out over the weekend and update.
