Gingerbread Play Dough

Birthday party in December...must have gingerbread scented play dough!
Makes the house smell like Christmas!
Gingerbread Play Dough
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp. cream of tartar
2 cups water
3 tbsp. oil
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. ginger

Mix all ingredients in a large pan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture reaches a "dough" consistency.  Remove from heat.  Knead dough for 5 minutes.  Add color with food coloring.  (I tried liquid and paste - both worked equally well.)
