Last week on my "Eat From the Pantry" post I said that in addition to my weekly meals I also made a BIG batch of homemade waffles to put in the freezer for quick breakfasts and a batch of homemade teething cookies for Judah.
A reader requested that I share that recipe with you - so if you would like to make your own teething cookies for your little one here you go!
What I like about this recipe is that it is really simple to make (not many ingredients and not very difficult) since I am a novice at baking. I also love that it is a healthy recipe and I know everything that goes into these "cookies" - no preservatives!
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 Tbsp applesauce
Heat oven to 300. Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until dough begins to hold together. Dust the counter with flour, then transfer the contents of bowl to the counter. Knead lightly until the dough is smooth, about 3 minutes. Roll out with a rolling pin until 1/2 inch thick. Cut out cookies using an inverted cup and a clean soda-bottle cap for the hole in the middle (the finished cookie looks like a donut - perfect for little hands to hold). Transfer cookies to a greased cookie sheet. Bake until barely browned, about 35 minutes. Let cool completely on cookie sheet. They're ready to eat now (under adult supervision, of course). Store for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
Hope your little one enjoys!
