The best part was that the recipe uses whole wheat pastry flour and honey instead of white flour and sugar, so I did not feel one bit guilty indulging him with a few extra bites.
Play-Dough Bread Recipe
In a large bowl, dissolve 1 tablespoon yeast in 3/4 cup lukewarm water.
In a separate bowl, mix 1/4 cup honey and 2 tablespoons butter in 1/2 cup boiling water. Stir until cool, then add to the larger bowl with the yeast.
Add a pinch of salt and mix well. Slowly stir in 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour. Knead on floured surface, adding flour as needed until the dough is easy to work with. Shape into rolls, braids, pretzels, etc. Place shaped dough on lightly greased cookie sheets and brush with beaten egg. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
