Biscotti for baby!! Mommy too, great for the whole family. These make great teething biscuits, good coffee dunkers, and good for dunking in milk for the older kids also. Try it you'll like it...
These are great! I didn't have brown sugar, so I used the same amount of white sugar and added 1/2 Tbsp of molasses. I also used 1/4 c applesauce for half the oil, and I added 1 tsp vanilla. I didn't taste the strong soda taste that a previous reviewer stated, but that could be because of the vanilla. This recipe is definately getting made again (my daughter actually ate them!).
The idea is great and the fingers are the perfect size and consistency for my 1 year old, but for me the recipe fell short in a couple areas. First, the taste wasn't that great. It smelled wonderful, but ended up with a strong soda taste. Second, I prefer making foods with fewer processed ingredients (sugar, flour) for my little one. I like the principle enough, though, that I am going to try to improve the recipe, maybe using molasses and baby cereal or whole wheat flour instead of sugar and white flour.
