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.)

  1. The use of platinum as a pinnacle precious metal is very much the replica watches of this collection. Usually I have a clear vision on what I think about a watch and its brand, but here I have more mixed feelings of concern and rolex replica sale than anything else. So, humor me a bit as I try and frame it. Specs about the watch, I get to at the end. A blued hand for the pointer rolex submariner replica date further assists legibility and reduces dial clutter, keeping the overall design simple and elegant. The main replica watches sale for this might be that the machines used to produce hands and indices are set up for gold and replica watches platinum such small pieces would be incredibly difficult to craft from platinum, possibly the most challenging metals to work with in the luxury replica watches uk industry.
