If your baby is teething and starting to eat solid food, you are probably looking for treats that are healthful and will soothe sore gums and help those little teeth poke through. There are many recipes available for baby cookies and teething biscuits.
This is a basic recipe that makes a firm cookie for your baby to gnaw on. You can experiment with adding spices such as ginger or cinnamon, or food grade extracts like vanilla, lemon, or peppermint to provide some variety and extra flavor.
Cream butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy.
Add flour and mix well.
Add 1 tbsp. beaten egg and stir well to make dough.
Form dough into small balls and roll these into stubby cigar shapes. These are easier for babies to hold in their fists.
Bake in oven set to 275 degrees for 45 minutes. Turn the cookies over and bake for another 10 minutes to harden them.
