Starfish Teething Cookies


I am on a mission:  To create homemade food my kids will eat that is more economical and healthier for them. And to provide to all my friends and viewers that have kids an EASY and fun recipe to enjoy. 

Let us just admit it now, that my 6 year old eats more than I do sometimes. So having good snacks and food that is not expensive is a must. Even more fun with the kids helping out. 

It is amazing when you go to the store how expensive it is to get a box of teething biscuits or crackers, especially when you look at the ingredients, and think "I can do that!". 
Well, this is the answer! 
And it's yummy enough for you to enjoy with the kiddos.
I have to be honest, because I want to taste before I post, I tasted this and it was good. I have eaten a few, I can not lie. 

My (baby) son does not like to eat the commerialised teething biscuits- and since he does not have many words yet, I am sure he is not rejecting those and loving these to please me. Especially because he is a picky eater.

My daughter Via loved to help make these. So, get the kids involved. You can have them use cookie cutters, we used the star, and make shapes. 

Starfish Teething Cookies
makes 28-30

2 Cups Flour OR 1 cup flour & 1 cup dry infant rice cereal
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Sugar
Cold or ice water (can use part use to flavour if you want)

1. Preheat oven 425F 
2. Mix flour and cereal.
3. Gradually stir in oil. 
4. 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.
5. Roll out to the thickness of a cracker on a floured surface and cut into desired shapes.
6. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet 10-12 min. or until lightly brown. Cool completely.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I know I will be baking them!!!
