Homemade Teething Cookies

In a previous post I shared that our 5 month old was teething. Tomorrow she will be 6 months and the last couple of days her teething has really kicked into gear. She has a teething rash, very irritable, and is waking 6-7 times during the night, when regularly she wakes up once during the night. I have tried everything except teething cookies. So I found a recipe and yesterday decided to bake some.
This was the first batch, the recipe says to leave in for 15 minutes but 10 would have been fine.
I put half of them in the freezer and half in the fridge. So far they have been good, and our daughter loves sucking on them. I also doubled the recipe.

1 cup flour
1 cup dry infant rice cereal  (or other flavored or
unflavored infant cereal)
3 tablespoons cooking oil
1 ripe smashed banana
1 teaspoon cinnamon
ice water

Preheat oven 425F
Mix flour and cereal and cinnamon.
Gradually stir in oil. Mix a little ice water at a time (start with 1/4 cup) until dough begins to form a ball and pull away from the bowl.
Roll out to the thickness of a cracker on a floured surface and cut into desired shapes.
Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet 10-12 min. or until lightly brown. Cool completely.

Store in an airtight container. (you may want to try 1/2 plain and 1/2 flavored baby cereal as the taste when using full flavored baby cereal is very strong.)
