  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a nonstick saucepan.
  2. Add the oil, water, and food coloring and whisk until smooth.
  3. Stirring constantly with a rubber spatula, cook the mixture over medium heat until it forms a ball, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Turn the dough onto a counter, let it cool slightly, then knead the dough until it has a smooth texture, about 1 minute.
  5. The dough will keep up to a week in a ziplock bag.
  6. To make pumpkin stems, place some pasta (suggested: fusilli) in a ziplock bag.
  7. Add five drops of green food coloring and a teaspoon of water.
  8. Seal the bag, then let your tot squish the pasta around until it's tinted. Pour the pasta onto a piece of waxed paper and let it dry for about five minutes before pressing it into your pumpkins.
