Teething Biscuits from Wondertime Magazine

I saw this recipe in the latest addition of Wondertime magazine. Drew is not quit ready for teething biscuits yet, but I’d figure I would go ahead and post the recipe for others now. I’ll post about it again after Drew’s tried them.

1 ½ Cups unbleached flour
½ Cup whole wheat flour
½ Cup of maple syrup
3 Tablespoons applesauce

Heat oven to 300. Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until dough begins to hold together. Dust counter with flour, then transfer contents of bowl to counter. Knead lightly until the dough is smooth, about 3 minutes. (If the dough is difficult to handle, dust with a little more flour.) Roll out with a rolling pin until 1/3 inch thick. Cut into biscuits using an inverted cup and a clean soda-bottle cap (or your thumb) for the hole, or use a doughnut cutter ($3 for 2.5 inch cutter, ). Transfer biscuits to a greased cookie sheet. Bake until barely browned, about 35 minutes. Let cool completely on a cookie sheet. They’re ready to eat now (under supervision, of course) They’ll harden slightly more if you leave them out overnight. Store for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.

And here is a caution about feeding teething biscuits from

IMPORTANT CAUTION: When feeding your infant Teething Biscuits, baby finger foods, or any other food that may pose a choking hazard, it is VERY important to watch the child closely. Always ensure the child is in a totally upright sitting position as well! Some parents will tell you one brand or recipe is great while others will tell you the very same brand/recipe was horrible and their child choked due to crumbling or breaking. There is no brand or recipe for teething biscuits that is guaranteed not to crumble or break off into pieces!!
