I found this on another website and my son loves these. A great way to get infant cereal into babies who don't like to eat it normally. For babies 9 mo and up.
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon water
- 1 1⁄2 cups infant cereal
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
- Cream together shortening and sugar.
- Add eggs, baking powder, salt, vanilla, and water.
- Mix until well blended.
- Gradually stir in cereal.
- Knead until smooth.
- Shape into 12 cookies or bars with your hands.
- Place on an ungreased sheet.
- Bake 20-30 miuntes or until dry.
- Store uncovered overnight.
I replaced the vanilla with the same quantity of chocalate powder and it came out just as good. the cookies are really hard but taste good.
I agree that these are good for a teething biscuit because they are pretty hard for a baby to bite off. It's not a soft, sweet cookie. Great for baby to gnaw on, and it gets soft with saliva. Keeps them busy for quite awhile..LOL! I would recommend lightly greasing your cookie sheet because mine were kind of hard to get off the cookie sheet. I'll pass this on to some neighborhood moms. Thanx for sharing.
These cookies were so hard my babies got frustrated trying to gnaw off a bite. They ended up throwing them on the floor and crying. These would probably be good for a teething biscuit but that isn't what I was looking for.
