Make the Salt Dough
To make the salt dough, mix four cups of all-purpose flour with one cup salt. Add one and one-half cup warm water. Knead, roll onto a lightly floured surface, and cut your shapes. Use a dowel or toothpick to create a hole in the top. Bake at 325 F for 45 minutes to an hour, flipping once.
