Baby’s Cheesy Cheese Logs

I just saw this recipe yesterday on the wholesomebabyfood blog. It seemed easy enough, I had all the ingredients on hand, so what the heck. Here is the recipe copied directly from their website:

Cheese Logs - a great finger food for babies 10 months and older. Babies 8 months + might be able to handle the texture, you decide Mom.

1/2 cup all purpose flour (using wheat flour makes this more nutritious but may yield a more gummy texture)
1/4 cup of butter1/2 cup of shredded Cheddar - preferably the small thin shreds
1 egg (or 2 egg yolks)
dash of pepper
dash of garlic powder
Mix the butter and flour together and then add the cheese & egg (spices are optional). You will then have a “dough”. Roll this dough into thin logs and & bake for about 10 mins @ 375 F. You may wish to bake these for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of your logs. If you notice browning on the bottoms, turn the logs over 1/2 way through the cooking time!
You can change this recipe as you see fit - instead of butter, use applesauce for example!

Note: I used 2 egg yolks and butter. I baked them for 10 minutes and they still were a little brown on the bottom. Do not grease your pan, there is enough grease from the butter and cheese. I wasn't sure what to expect from these. I thought maybe they'd be like cheese straws, but it has more of a biscuit consistancy than anything. Drew wasn't quit ready for the entire stick yet, so I broke them down for him. I am not sure if you can freeze these or not, but I am going to try.
