Pumpkin Spice Scented Play Dough

I found this recipe for homemade play dough.  As if that wasn't exciting enough, the recipe included ideas as to how make your play dough scented.  We've made the pumpkin spice scented one, I'm anxious to try the apple pie one too.

Homemade Play Dough
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 TBSP cooking oil
1 TBSP cream of tartar
1 cup water
Food coloring
Add-Ins: spices, glitters, etc.1 tsp or more
(add to your liking-I used about 2 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice)

Measure ingredients into medium sized pot-mix them well before heating.  Over medium heat, cook the dough, stirring constantly until it forms a ball.  Turn the dough onto a board and knead until very smooth.  It will be warm to the touch, but try to knead it until it becomes a nice, smooth ball.  Cool. Store in a ziploc bag or plastic container.
