Dough Goodies!

I have been busy creating today :)
I pulled out an old book I had from years ago.
It is a book titled "Dough Goodies" with decorator's recipes inside.
I had so much fun today!
I plan on making more items soon..perhaps give these items as gifts for the holidays coming up.
The recipe I used made all of these items pictured here...
The recipe is as follows:

Dough Recipe:
1 Cup Hot Water
1 1/2 Cup Flour
Egg Whites, stirred
1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Cup Salt

Combine hot water and salt. Let stand for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add flour and oats. Work dough with hands, adding more flour if still sticky, until it is easily pliable.
Glaze with egg white
Bake in a 325 degree oven on greased cookie sheets (I used Pam spray)
Let cool. Spray with Crystal Clear Acrylic if desired.

One batch of dough makes about 5 bagels
Materials needed: poppy seeds
Roll dough into 3 1/2 inch balls. Press thumb into center to make a hole. Glaze with egg whites. Sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake for 2 hours or until completely hard...(I baked mine for about an hour!)

Cinnamon rolls:
One batch of dough makes about 8 cinnamon rolls.
Materials needed: ground cinnamon

Roll dough into a 3/4 inch by 12 inch snake shape. pinch one end of snake and wrap around, forming a roll. Dust top with cinnamon. Glaze top with egg whites. Bake approximately 1 hour or until hard.

****I put coarse SEA SALT onto the cinnamon rolls after I glazed them with egg whites :)

This is such a fun craft! Makes a nice gift when put in a basket with a big bow on top...looks pretty as a display on any kitchen table :)



  1. Louise,
    these are gorgeous! Are they very difficult to do?!?!!? I would love to make a basket full of them. How fun & creative!!!!!!!!

  2. These are not difficult at all to do! The bagels are the easiest I would say! :) just roll a ball up in your hands and push your thumb through for a hole...brush with egg whites and sprinkle with poppy seeds :) I think they look the most real..they turn out hard as rocks!

  3. Leave it up to you Louise, to create something so beautiful!!! and unique.
