Pumpkin Spice {Gluten-Free!} Play Dough

My little guy really loves play dough. A new batch was in order after a summer of outdoor play, so I added a few extra ingredients to my regular recipe to come up with this autumn-inspired Pumpkin Spice play dough.

1 C. Rice Flour
1/2 C. Corn Starch
1/2 C. Salt
1 Tbsp. Cream of Tartar
1 Tbsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 C. Hot Water
1 1/2 Tbsp. Oil {I use grapeseed}
Red and Yellow Food Coloring
Vanilla and Almond Extract

Combine dry ingredients in a sauce pan.
Add water and oil, stirring to mix.
Add a dash of both almond and vanilla extract.
Add a couple of drops each of red and yellow food coloring. {the color is, of course, completely optional}
Over medium heat, begin cooking the mixture.
Stir constantly, adding more food coloring if desired. I was trying to achieve a color similar to pumpkin pie filling.
Cook for several minutes until the dough has formed a solid mass in the pan, then turn it out onto the counter to cool a bit.
Knead the cooled dough.
If it seems too sticky, add more cornstarch one tablespoon at a time. If it seems too dry, add a bit more oil.
Store in an air-tight container to use over and over again.
