Ingredients
  1. 1 cup cornstarch
  2. 1 cup white glue (like Elmer’s Glue)
  3. 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice (fresh lime juice or vinegar can be substituted)
  4. 1 Tablespoon olive oil (or baby oil)
  5. Hand lotion
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Mix well. The ingredients should form a smooth paste.
  2. Microwave on high for 30 seconds.
  3. Take the bowl out of the microwave and stir well.
  4. Place back in the microwave for 30 more seconds.
  5. Stir again. Place back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
  6. Carefully remove the mixture from the bowl. Be careful, the dough will be hot!
  7. Place the dough on a cornstarch covered surface and start kneading until dough becomes a smooth ball. This can take up to 10 minutes. The dough can be quite sticky. Cover your hands with lotion before starting the kneading process. This will help with the smoothness of the dough and keep it from sticking to your hands.
  8. Place your dough on a piece of plastic wrap that has been covered with a thin coat of lotion. Wrap tightly and then place in an air-tight zip lock bag.
  9. Let the dough rest over night (or at least 8 hours).
  10. You can color the dough with either food coloring, acrylic paint, or markers. When using with your favorite springerle cookie mold, we suggest that you use the food coloring so that your molds remains food-safe.
  11. Please keep in mind that if you color the dough, the color will darken as it dries. Images also shrink a bit when they dry. Allow at least three days for the images to completely dry.
  12. When making your impression using your springerle cookie mold, dust the surface of the Rabbit in Easter Egg cookie mold with cornstarch before making the impression. Cut out the Rabbit in Easter Egg impression to desired shape and place on a parchment line baking sheet for drying. Use a pastry brush to gently brush off any excess cornstarch.
  13. We used a coffee stirrer stick to poke out the hole that we threaded our ribbon through. After the image completely dried, we then used acrylic white paint on the relief to finish our Springerle Easter Egg Ornaments.
